First Day Of School When Caitlyn first came to school here at FAMMS, she had a rush of excitement and nervousness. Also known as nervous-cited. Caitlyn was super excited to meet people and make new friends. She is super kind, so I bet that wasn’t a problem for her. An Accomplishment Caitlyn loves to dance.
At first I was intimidated by the groups of girls cheering each other on, filling the gymnasium with their premeditated chants, while I would compete and just barely be able to hear my parents cheer me on. Luckily, after a couple meets, the other teams rallied around me and have cheered me on throughout the seasons. In my early years, I feared that gymnastics would eventually ruin my social life, seeing that no one in my school had gymnastics in common with me. I soon learned that gymnastics took away this fear because in my mind, I was not missing out, rather everyone else
Growing up in non-muslim communities has been one of the biggest challenges I had to overcome, but it forced me to develop coping mechanisms that helped me adapt to my surroundings. Fitting in and pretending to be what society thinks is “normal” has been a burden for me and many people who share similar cultures and beliefs. However, I give myself credit.I played the game very nicely and didn’t dare to break the rules of society. By third grade the whole “fitting in” concept was a piece of cake. I was exactly what I wanted as a child: winning class president two years in a row, playing lead in a major sixth grade play, and making plenty of friends.
Even when I was still in diapers, I remember how much I had gawked at the girls in high school who wore their cheerleading uniforms with pride. I knew at first glance that becoming a cheerleader was something that I was going to do when I was older. Some of my earliest memories include myself cheering at a Utah State University basketball game. I saw those cheerleaders as individuals with not only an excess of talent and school spirit but also as role models and some of my biggest idols. This dream never left, as was evident when I tried out for the Skyview Cheer Team while still in eighth grade.
I have danced ballet since the age of three, but it was at thirteen that I experienced a moment not unlike a scene in a romance novel in which the characters are thunderstruck by the realization they are in love. Suddenly I realized that I wanted to dance more, and I wanted to dance forever, and I wanted to give ballet everything. I consider myself lucky amongst my peers: not many kids are afforded the opportunity to really and voluntarily sacrifice for the love of something as arbitrary as art. But ballet demands sacrifice, and I wouldn 't be me without it. When my father 's kidneys failed, I danced.
You are told from a very early age to be, "perfect". Perfect in your form, and in your body. During my career as a dancer I have danced in many different styles; salsa, jazz, ballet, and modern. Each require something specific from the dancer. For salsa it 's all about passion, passion with the music, with yourself, and with your partner.
Nicholas Pyles Professor Robin Mathis COMM 2400 2 October 2014 Pyles 1 By a show of hands how many people in the class has been roller skating and had a fun time? Now think about how your life would change if you had a disability. Cerebral Palsy affects my life in many way and one of the ways I coped with it was I turn all the negativity that I got from people and turn it into good positive energy. So I discovered an interest in Roller Skating at just three years old and got diagnosed with Cerebral Palsy at the age of four years old so that made it even harder to learn how to skate. Roller Skating enabled me to conquer my disability and showed me the endless possibilities that come along with it.
Ever since I was a little girl I was involved in dance. From attending Melinda’s School of Dance in Humboldt to Michelle’s Dance Connection in Algona and then going back to Humboldt to Chanterella’s Dance Studio. I’ve alway dreamt of being on the danz squad. During my eighth grade year, I was so excited because that was the year I was able to try out. The try-outs were in the spring so I wanted school to hurry fastly.
Gymnastics has been a part of my life since I was three, and it has always been an enormous commitment. In high school I decided to join my school 's gymnastics team. My school isn 't known for having an amazing gymnastics team, and we had never won a City Championship Title. During my freshman year, two of the teams who participated in the City Championship meet with us, were huge rivals. My team and I knew we couldn 't beat either of these teams but we were very intrigued to find out who would win.
When they were done they put a poster up that had people 's numbers that had made it. I went looking for my number and it was on their I was so excited I couldn 't stop smiling. It was great to be at every game with my sister but the main thing I learned was the more I opened up the more fun I would have by being a shy kid to be dancing in front of hundreds of people was a ‘’little bit nerve racking but I got over it. My sister has inspired me to be myself and be outgoing and it 's good to try new
