I’m Rabih Youssef (they call me Mike Richard), I was born on June 20, the Skateboarding Day. I started skateboarding in 2017 and started to get exposed to diverse cultures of my new friends.
I like how skateboarding gave me so many friends and love, first I skated to escape the hard times, but after that, I started just to enjoy it and feel the fun.
Time passed by, and when I started meeting the children, I started to feel different. I decided to teach fewer private sessions and focus on the free sessions with the children; they literally changed my life, and I found myself here using skateboarding to help the kids enjoy and escape the hard times they are experiencing.
