Dear coach Mark, I'm forever grateful for your amazing support and learning experience! You've taught me many things, but my favorite were: confidently making future goals and achievements, and staying hardworking and positive!

In the short time I worked with Mark, I started to play better, and moved up the rankings again.

Mark, your support means a lot - you seem to know the right way to say things to keep me fueled. I still refer to your notes to me on Slack about being a champion and visualization.
