As kids, they are forced to do what their parents tell them, not knowing the consequences. “I didn 't know I hated the pageants. I thought I loved them, just as my mother said. I didn 't find out until my body told me at the age of 16. Then, of course, it took many more years to figure it out.”
Helen Keller was a big one, and she had admired her throughout her life (Miss America Org.). Her family, who also inspired her a lot, taught her to work hard and never give up. They strived to see Heather succeed in life and tried their best to make sure she did (Premiere Speakers). Her mother had enrolled her in dancing school in 1978 and that affected her big time (Bates). She had learned to dance by counting beats to music, which had struck a match in her desire to overcome obstacles.
Those days were always the best three weeks I 've had in my life just because I 've always wanted to be a dancer and the fact that I was able to even perform at MY party was amazing, and we always practiced for three hours, so you really know that we couldn’t mess up. Of course, we would take our little breaks in between our rehearsal, honestly what got a lot better was that I was able to dance to my favorite singer, her name is Jennifer Lopez, I 've always wanted to be like her growing up, she also dances and I let my teacher know about that and we watched her video to the song that I was going to dance too and we added a lot of her dance moves into my routine and I literally felt like I was dancing just like her. It got even better, the whole idea of it being it a surprise dance is that no one of my family member 's or anyone I knew was able to go in there with me because it would defeat the whole purpose of it being a surprise.
This was my tenth season doing competitive cheerleading. People have always told me that Worlds is the most prestigious competition that I will ever get to experience. You don’t realize how amazing it truly is until you see it for yourself. When I made this Worlds team at such a young age, I felt honored and amazed that I got to represent such an amazing team. The division I was in was a large coed level 5.

I was lucky to have been able to interview Larissa at that time; she hadn’t joined Diablo Ballet until January, after the Winter Ballet Gala. She is one of the most beautiful dancers that I have ever seen, which may be because she has to been to, as she explained it “the best of the best”: the National Ballet School of Canada. Though she admitted that it may have been too large of a leap for her, a sixteen-year-old at the time, she knows that the experience has taught her many valuable lessons about ballet, given her the opportunity to meet amazing people, and have exceptional experiences. She did say, “Mostly, that high-stress situation led to me being the victim of the stereotype, and not knowing how to deal with stress at sixteen, away from home”; the stereotype she was referring to is the issue of being unsatisfied with her body and weight. Larissa had
The Gabby Douglas Movie is the story of world famous gymnast Gabby Douglas and how she became an olympic gold medalist. It was made after she became a gold medalist and aired on lifetime in 2014. It starts with her as a small child and shows the struggles one might have to go through to get to that level of competition. It is right around hour long and the rating of the movie is PG. I think this is a great movie to inspire kids to try hard in all aspects of life.
I was not old enough to volunteer for them until the past few years, and the year that I decided to do so really changed my whole life. I grew to love the kids; I had a whole new understanding of how they worked and just how special they were. My first day of volunteering with the gymnastics team was an interesting one. There are eight girls on the teams, no girl even remotely similar to another.
