Meet Debra Morgernstern

Ana Carolina González-Peña • February 21, 2024

I discovered a gem within the Center for Modern Aging Princeton — the French club. Joining this vibrant community not only revived forgotten memories but also introduced me to a circle of wonderful individuals. It’s a clear testament to the diverse and enriching experiences this center has to offer.

As a proud member of the Center, I can confidently affirm that this place has become my sanctuary. Seamlessly addressing the holistic needs of older adults, it provides a harmonious blend of social, physical, and mental stimulation.

Reflecting on life’s unpredictable journey, a valuable piece of advice stands out to me: embrace positivity. This mindset has been my guiding light when navigating challenges. Regular physical exercise plays a pivotal role in maintaining this outlook, and my deep love for dancing, especially salsa, has added a joyful rhythm to my daily routine. Dancing has become more than a pastime; it’s a source of pure joy and a life-changer.

Allow me to extend this heartfelt wisdom to you — in the flow of life, adopting a positive perspective and nurturing your physical well-being can be truly transformative.

Consider this my warm invitation to embark on a journey of self-discovery, community connection, and the simple joy of being. Give yourself the opportunity to explore endless possibilities and embrace the wisdom that comes from living a fulfilling life, all while reveling in the uplifting joy that dancing, particularly salsa, can bring. Envision each day as a new chapter in the beautiful story of life, waiting to be unfolded with a dance of joy.
