Hi my name is Abla Chejai, I am 21 years old, originally from Morocco but located in Montreal Quebec.
I have been practicing parkour now for about 6 years and it has become a big part of my life.
It helped to give me more confidence as a teenager and provided me with something constructive to practice.
I came to Canada in 2008 and before that I was doing hip hop dance in Morocco after attempting to get into the hip hop dance scene in Montreal, but I realized it wasn’t the same as in my home country.
To me parkour is a very useful tool to help people to problem solve and learn more about themselves and appreciate their environment.
I hope to continue to strive to be a good athlete and act as an inspiration to other women who are interested in the discipline.
