    Hi everybody,
    My name is Nicholas, you're more than welcome to call me Nick. This is my first time posting something here as I'm still a new bee here. I am here to call out for all the people who are or thinking of taking a gap year.

    Here is a little "gappie" story about me:
    I decided to take a gap year before I go to uni and explore and do the things that I thoroughly enjoy and love, which is teaching table tennis and travelling. I know it sounds a bit weird or funny... why teaching TABLE TENNIS??? Table tennis is a big part of my life, therefore I want to use what I learnt, not just playing the sport but how to be a great sport man and a better person. I don't know how many people here play sport but if you do then you should know what I meant. OK.. back to the gap year experience, I started coaching last year and it has been very tough. It was so difficult to find clients and schools to start off my coaching currier, especially financial wise. However things got better and better, now I am the founder of a sport agency which helps over 20 different schools in all area. It has been an unforgettable year for me and I am carrying on my coaching currier after this gap year.

    There are many more things I want to share and talk about but I just want to cut the story short and try to find other people to share their gappie stories and potentially inspire more people to become one of the "gappie".

    Thank you very much for your time
