Samantha Kerrigan - 20 years old, from Dublin, Ireland
Samantha has been a ZIN Member since the 2nd of August 2019. She was trained by ZES Hermann Melo when she took her B1 training. Her Zumba journey started way before that when she chose to follow her love and passion for music and dance at the age of 15!
What started as embracing her love for Zumba quickly became a passion and from then on, there wasn't one single day without dancing. Zumba will always be a community in which Samantha feels the most like herself. She has participated in so many other sports her whole life and never felt like she belonged or was made for them which led her to giving up and struggling to discover what she wants and who she wants to be. She believes that everything happens for a reason and without any “failures” and “mistakes”, she wouldn’t be where she is today!
Her hard work and dedication brought many presenters and incredible opportunities and experiences to guide and inspire her to become a ZIN Member herself. The second she took that step, a whole new world opened up right in front of her eyes!
Samantha’s dreams and ambitions grew more and more as each day went on. In this world, there is always something to learn, ways to grow, ways to improve yourself as a person (and instructor), the list is endless and that is what Zumba gave her… A life and a purpose!
Being inspired and learning every single day from so many other instructors, attending ZIN Jam Sessions and events all over the world live and virtually have also created the path she's on today.
Samantha has been part of International Zumba events since the beginning of her journey. Today, she has already held Masterclasses and attended events as a Presenter in countries like Ireland, Romania, Germany, Poland and many more.
Every time there’s a new day, her journey begins all over again! She’s always just getting started!
