Yi Ling was also able to lead by example when she was the Sports Captain in 2010, Cheerleading Captain in 2012, Student Instructor in 2016 and Dance Leader for the National Day Parade, Floating Platform Team 2021.
Yi Ling joined DGA in October 2021 and has been assisting and learning the ropes from experienced coaches. Despite coming from an Artistic Gymnastics background, Yi Ling is determined to learn and improve along the way as she aspires to be a coach that is nurturing and knowledgeable.
Yi Ling strongly believes that learning is a journey and not a destination. She hopes to inspire her gymnasts by constantly reminding them to take charge of their own learning and be proud of their achievements regardless big or small. Ultimately, she wants the gymnasts to be in an environment where they feel at home which helps in creating an increased opportunity for long term success as an athlete.
