We Rock the Spectrum Melawati Mall Grand Opening

On Saturday, October 6th, 2018, We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym celebrated its second location in Malaysia, and fourth international location, We Rock the Spectrum – Melawati Mall! Yusliana Samsuri and Nazrishah Nordin are the amazing owners of We Rock the Spectrum – Melawati Mall. They credit their son, Rafa, for introducing them into the special needs community. As loving as Rafa is, Yusliana has also seen the challenges that come with special needs children, as he struggles in social settings when interacting with other kiddos. He was always considered the “odd one” and Yusliana knew she had to do something to help bridge that gap for Rafa. After learning about the grand opening of We Rock the Spectrum – Ara Damansara, Yusliana knew she had to meet Rahmah Mahmood, the owner of the first international location of the We Rock the Spectrum Kid’s Gym franchise! Yusliana took Rafa to the gym and immediately saw how well he did in the sensory gym and its …
