In life so many things can happen that we are not prepared for, but it takes guts to get through what this young girl has. Soul Surfer is the true story of teen surfer Bethany Hamilton, who lost her left arm in a shark attack in 2003. Bethany spent three long weeks recovering from this life changing experience. After finding her way she courageously overcame all odds to become a champion again, through her sheer determination and unwavering faith. The real life story of Soul Surfer is successfully brought to life through the use of great acting, realistic scenes, and really satisfactory directing.
“You know your dad passed away when you were just 2 years old but you didn’t know that the reason your mom couldn’t take care of you was because... she was a mermaid”. I looked at him like he was crazy because I believed mermaids weren’t real. He continued on to say “That’s why all of these changes are happening. When a mer-girl, as they call it, turns 16 then they start to experience the changes of being a full fledged mer-girl”.
After reading “Mermaid Fever,” the statement that I think this essay makes about societal attitudes is that people will react and behave very strangely to anything that is out of the ordinary. The narrator bases his essay on a public beach, located in a small town in Connecticut, and out of the blue, this teenage girl’s body was washed up under the tide line one summer night. After extensive scientific tests and examinations on the body, the news finally broke out that the girl was a mermaid. The girl was soon transferred to a local museum in town where she would be put on a glass display that will be open to the public. This news brought the whole city together, and people waited in line for hours just to observe this fond discovery.
Never, Ever Give Up There are three reasons I believe that the theme of Diana Nyad’s presentation “Never, Ever Give Up’’ is “Never Giving Up.’’ First, her swim to Florida was long and treacherous full of dangers from sharks to jellyfish and hypothermia. The journey was a hard one with dangerous currents and predators lurking below. She also had to swim in the pitch black dark since any light will attract sharks, jellyfish, and baitfish which attracts sharks. Second, she had tried numerous times before which all failed.
Sadly, the boat leaves without the both of them. In that situation she was very selfless. She sacrificed her safety to be with her brother. Because she is alone on the island for 18 years, Karana has little interaction with others. Her reputation is based off of her actions with the animals the living conditions.
While Sisi, Hannah, and Sydney were passing a volleyball I was riding the longboard around. After a few hours we all got bored of passing the volleyball and being at east. We decided to go back to Hannah and, I was going to ride the longboard. Sisi told me not to go down a hill and I said I wouldn 't. And I was ahead of Sisi and Sydney.
Coaching Girls and Women February 27, 2012 After open heart surgery, two back surgeries and a hip replacement, I was beginning to get straightened out (2001). My good friend and Athletic Director, Alan White, called me into his office, “Tom, you’re looking much better, and by the way you’re adding the Women’s team to your job next fall.” Good friend, did I say? Actually I’ve taught women or girls all my career.
Growing up, I was never athletically inclined. I was a disaster at any sport that required hand-eye coordination, and running made me want to rip my lungs out of my chest. However, when I was nine, my girl scout troop participated in another try-it day. This time it was for synchronized swimming. The girls on the team knoxed our hair, did our makeup, helped us decorate suits, and taught us our very own routine.
I have been working with Girlventures for two years, and I am about to embark on the third year in June. Girlventures is a nonprofit based in San Francisco focusing on empowerment of females and non-gender-conforming people through inner reflection and the outdoors. At Girlventures, I realized how strong I could be and my leadership style and potential. I reached for a grounding force to focus my energies and distract from the chaos at home. I sought to find an escape and an outlet through my activities, where I could get away from everything and be happy.

The most recent incident involving a dolphin biting a patron occurred in 2012. According to CBS News article, “Girl Bitten While Feeing Dolphin at
I started the swim program back in 2010 my daughter, Kasey Rein; she wanted me to start it because she knew she would place at State. She was the only swimmer through 2010-11, since no one else knew how to swim. Afterwards high school students started to join swimming.
