I read a book called Kickoff. It was a story about a girl named Tyra Fraser, who moved from Florida to England. She played soccer all her life and leaving her old team back home was a big deal. It took Tyra awhile to get use to living in England. Tyra’s first day was awful; she got in trouble because her uniform was incorrect.
Then after that, Lupe practiced against her brother and easily beat him, then played her brothers friend Alfonso-who is supposed to be a champ- and beat him easily. Also the story said “Lupe worked so hard that one day, While she was drying dishes, her mother asked why her thumb was swollen. Then later on when she got to the park once she took her glove off someone asked “How can you play with a broken thumb,”that has to take hard work to have that much muscle. If people think you have broken thumb you have to be a hard working
This was my first year on a varsity team and only my second year playing soccer competitively, so joining the team was especially daunting. But, outside of practice hours (4-5 days per week for 2-3 hours), I practiced at the park and trained with my cousin, who played soccer in college, to improve my skills. I even played in the house, which my mother did not appreciate. But, I genuinely wanted to get better and pull my weight and be part of the team. The team gave me a sense of community and pushed me to persevere in the face of adversity.
In fact, my outlook was amazing; there were three elite meets that season, each with a limit of runners on my team that would be taken. Then, tragedy struck the team; three of our fastest girls were injured and out for the season. Now, I wasn’t happy about them being sidelined, but it did finally give me a chance to recover my placement from the beginning of sophomore year. I wanted to help lead the team to state, and with what my coach had previously said, it didn’t appear to be too far out of my reach. However, “too far” should have been followed by an asterisk, as my season soon spiraled out of my
For the Humans of Nipher Project I interviewed several students at Nipher on the hunt for the golden quote. A quote that represented not only the student but the whole Nipher community. You may ask “Why is she smiling if she 's scared about growing up?” Molly isn’t scared. She 's excited for the future, more freedom, more trust, having a later bedtime. But she also understands the challenges of growing up most kids don’t know exist.
They helped pay for my on-campus EMT course, which is the only thing that allowed me to take the course.” In between her busy schedule, Fratt enjoys finding time to stay connected with the women of WES, who offer as much social support as they do academic. Fratt especially enjoys the holiday cookie exchange when she is able to meet the board and strengthen her relationship with the society. “My personal mentor, Elaine, is always very engaged and interested in my schooling and social life. It’s wonderful to grab lunch or dinner with her, and just update someone on my life, knowing that they really care about what I have to say.” Fratt’s time at CC has been enhanced by WES, a group that has given her both friendship and opportunities she may not have had otherwise. Through WES’s continuous encouragement and the intensive environment at CC, Fratt has taken away the ability to balance her life, take initiative, and work well alone and with others.
My favorite hobby is reading and watching TV because I enjoy being entertained. My favorite book is the “Mocking Jay,” and my favorite TV show is Kim Possible. I adore the color pink and sparkles because I like bling and being super girly. My abilities are being athletic; I like to run track, play volleyball and basketball, being able to finish my homework, protecting my little sister from harm, and creating new experiences. I enjoy eating red beans and rice with short ribs.
Emily may be shy but she has many hobbies, a family she cares for, and a list of goals she hopes to accomplish. Emily’s hobbies help her stay social and active during the week. She enjoys jeeping with her friends on the most beautiful of days. While jeeping around she yells at people to try and get their attention. Not only does she yell at them, but she also sings to them.
Debate is my favorite activity that I am a part of here at school. I love spending class periods and weekends with everyone. From walking to Dairy Queens and McDonalds to hearing about the interesting in round stories people have to sitting around the tables waiting for late rounds to get out and talking, I have so many incredible memories from this activity and want to help ensure others do as well. As
She said she enjoyed history because the teachers in that department made the class fun. She mentioned specifically her favorite teacher Mr. Dolzar always did his best to make the class both informative ,but also fun. She then explained that she enjoyed taking cosmotology class in high school because she was able to learn a trade , and that she made a few friends. She was too young to have been alive during the Kennedy assassination to remember it on the very day it happened. She did mention that about 5th grade they were beginning to mention the assassination of JFK in history
She spoke with the doctor last Monday at her sports physical, and she told us that she thinks its runner 's knee. She said the cause is uneven distribution of muscular strength in the quads. As a rock climber she built strong thighs and upper body muscles, but her posterior leg muscles are not as strong and her calf muscles and hamstrings are tight. The other issue noted was the wrong kind of shoes. The shoes are to flat and lack support.
Even though it felt like an eternity, it was only a few minutes before I was on a nebulizer. The doctor said I had a severe anxiety attack. These attacks started coming every day as soccer season continued. Soccer was the one thing I always enjoyed but being the 8th grader on a Varsity team, meant I was the easiest target for tormenters. Girls would taunt me for surpassing them.
