Rye Y Story Project: Yamileth

YamilethI first started coming to the Rye Y when I was working for a local family taking care of their kids and I used to bring them to the Y for classes and programs. And then a few years ago, my family and I moved to Rye not too far from the Y. I started bringing my own daughter, Naomi, to several classes including ballet, gymnastics and swimming. We love the instructors like Ellen Watermelon, Dawny Dew and Chiara.

My husband and I both use the fitness center and I am here at least 4 days a week. I live close by so I just walk over for all the activities with my daughter. The Y is really like a second home for our family and we really love it here. We’ve met a lot of people and made a lot of friends. And now with Naomi getting ready for kindergarten next year, we are hoping to enroll her in the Kindertime program, which runs after school.
