In fact, for the rest of her life, Kahlo did many very non-typical things. She became the first to attend a certain school where she became friends with many similar minded people in terms of intellect and politics. She became extremely politically active, joining groups such as the Young Communist league and the Mexican Communist party.

Through the past 11 year of playing competitive hockey, I have had some incredible experiences that have morphed me into a more well rounded individual. Playing hockey at such a competitive level has granted me many opportunities that many other people my age haven't had the chance to do.
At points I would put what I needed to do in order to succeed in hockey ahead of school because until I was a sophomore in high school I was foolish enough to believe I had a shot of going big in hockey. All of this leads to my main point that I wasn’t born with an athlete identity however, I created one by pursuing a sport I am passionate about and would do anything I can to help myself succeed in it. A scholarly journal essay written by Shaun Boren called The Recreational Sports Journal talks about different athletes and how they had dreams of going big and the youth life certain athletes lived from 6am practices to missing school due to travel for a sport. While reading this journal I couldn’t help but think of myself as I lived a very similar lifestyle.
