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.
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.
Being a dancer takes all of ones efforts. 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.
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.
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. We showed up the day of the meet and we enjoyed ourselves and tried our hardest.
We had to wait in a room so the judges could get all the scores in. 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
All my 8th grade classmates and I sit on the cafeteria floor at Daniel Wright Middle School, giggling and staring at the gigantic screen. A slideshow plays. Often mortifying pictures of our younger selves appear with our names. I recollect all the vivid memories from middle school and earlier, like when my 5th grade teacher accidentally threw a snowball at one of my classmates. My friends and I sit together, hollering when we see each other on the screen.
The time had come. The award ceremony of the last competition of the marching band season, the National Championships for class IV A was beginning shortly. Being at the J. Birney Crum Stadium with the rest of band, as well as other marching bands from around the Northeast, was surreal. The energy was crackling through the air as we waited with anticipation for the ceremony to commence. Minutes before, all of us were watching a lively performance by Sacred Heart University.

“Adoption” is the first word in my family dictionary, a noun that defines my life and how I live. My parents adopted me when I was 13 months and taught me how my heritage defines my identity. Through heritage camps and adoption conferences, I came to accept my Chinese background as the dual part that defines my life in America. Outwardly I represented a model Chinese-American student, yet I loathed the stereotypical mold.
I cannot imagine how I had gotten my feet to move, but I had found myself enthusiastically swinging my body around the room when hearing the instructor count: one, two,three and four repeatedly as each muscle throughout my body, swung around, to each beat being counted. I had waited for these exciting moments, where having fun and being myself suited each moment dancing. Now, upon learning how to salsa, there were various discoveries that I had discovered along the way - my new strengthens and weaknesses such as my ability to quickly adapt to a different style of music than what I am usually exposed to, my ability to balance myself while my partner spins me, my ability to expand my creativity while dancing and lastly my ability to be more confident with my body while I am dancing as salsa forces you to be more sensual while dancing. However, every strength has
