“I'm an etiquette consultant,” Abraham said to everyone gathered in the lounge area. “I teach people about good manners. It's important to remember that your manners do matter, and your presence matters. Anytime you walk into a room, people can tell what kind of person you are. You make a first impression, and that is something that goes beyond how you dress. It's about your smile and how you carry yourself.” “My business is about teaching you how to let your heart shine through and making sure that you allow your presence to be known.”

“This is the Manners Matter event,” Total Obstacle Fitness Center partner Joe Shakeenab said. “Samantha talks about etiquette, discipline and anti-bullying. But the first part of our event was about fun and fitness. We focused on some Parkour and Ninja Warriortype drills. Hopefully, everyone had fun and tried something new.” You may contact Samantha Abraham at mannersmatterproject@ gmail.com. Total Obstacle Fitness Center is located at 1030 Progress Drive, Suite A.
