Of course I was nervous on how people would react but that was surpassed with my excitement of the beginning of my new hair journey.
Julia Young English 1010 Larson, P.3 Personal Narrative The professional boxer Muhammad Ali once said, “I hated every minute of training, but i said ‘Don’t quit. Suffer now and live the rest of your life a champion.’ ” This quote became relatable the moment I looked back on the start of my cheerleading “career”. My older sister Aarika cheered for Brighton while I was in 7th grade, she tried convincing me for months to join a team and finally I agreed. I wasn’t very excited, I wasn’t thrilled having to be thrown into something I didn’t know anything about, and I was absolutely terrified about being the “new girl” on the team. I remember that first practice, walking into the gym and being shaken by the loud blaring music and girls running around
She grew up in a small town named Morrisville, Vermont. Beckie attended Morrisville Grade School which was where her father went to grade school, and People’s Academy for high school.

My sister woke up morning saying, “ only a couple more days till the best day ever!” It was the day before we finally got to go to Disney Land. My “sister was watching videos on the rides we would go on. She would always make me write down the names of the rides she wanted to ride.

In past years, my high school swim team has never designated two individuals to be team captains. However, this year my coach decided that our team needed a girl and boy who could step up and lead the team when necessary. As team captain, I believe that it is important that we give back to our community as a team. Not only are we taking time to volunteer, but we also grow closer to the people on our team. So far this school year we all woke up as early as five o’clock in the morning to set up for and volunteer at the Plano Balloon Festival 5K/1K.
