Tim Tebow has joined GMA as a contributor. Tebow is a part of a segment called “motivate me Monday” that highlights people and their triumph stories.
GMA is honoring a HOLIDAY HERO for the season and the with Tebow reporting…
You need to watch Tebow’s touching report on the latest Holiday Hero is a woman out of Vernon, New York.
Her name is Nesta Felix and she is a college basketball coach who has taken her skills to a small spaced classroom to help out kids to keep them out of the streets and out of trouble.
Nesta started an after school program called NewFlex out of her own pocket, on her own dime. Nesta’s program is keeping her kids from getting involved with gangs, keeping them out of other troubles and the females from getting pregnant.
When Tebow spoke with her kids and they said, “she teach us leadership, we should never be a follower. Stand out in a good way.”
Tebow even asked them, “what kind of stuff does she teach y’all?” and they said, “Dancing too. She teach us dancing.” One girl said, I made myself a better person because without Coach Felix, I would probably be on the street doing the wrong thing or following other people. She’s a miracle.”
Some of the parents had great things to say. One couple said this about Nesta, “Blessing from God.”
Another mother said, “she spreads herself very, very thin. There aren’t any words for people like her and what she does for children. So I would just encourage her to just don’t give up. Don’t give up on the youth. And she really is saving lives. Sorry.” (the sorry was because this mother was getting choked up while speaking)
Talking to Nesta, Tebow reassures her of what greatness she has done and he than surprises with her a well deserved buffet of treats.
