I never quit on the challenge and earned a solid grade on the final. I succeeded in the class and proved that I can handle adversity even though at one point it seemed like I had no chance of coming back. Even though I didn't accomplish the ultimate goal of earning an “A” in the class I taught myself as long as I don’t give up and work hard I will succeed every
The Loser, Over the years, several words have lost their meaning, literally, terrific, honestly among the lot of them. But the ne I find most fascinating is the word “loser”. People who were taunted with the hideous words a few years before do not seem like losers anymore. On the contrary, they are our power houses. The ones who were called losers are the reasons why our transportation, commerce, communication, technology, even government are as phenomenal as we know it.
College has brought a lot of stress to him, but he doesn’t let that discourage him, he uses all of his problems back at home, as an empowerment. He’s my hero, because when I talk about giving up, he’s always there to keep me pushing. In fact, he’s the one pushing me to finish up this essay right now. There’s been times where I actually broke down and doubted myself, I didn’t believe in myself. I wanted to drop out at one point, because I felt like I didn’t belong.
It’s in the little aspects of our lives that we most succeed. Do not forget that failure is a learning experience, something misunderstood by society. In all, succeeding in life is not difficult as long as you know the little things count, everything has risks, and failure is okay.

I have been cheerleading for the past 7 years, and truly love it. Ever since a young girl, I have admired the Perrysburg High School cheerleaders. Cheerleading helps me express myself, and define who I am as a person. Cheerleading has been my passion since a young girl, and I have a true love for it. Cheerleading has helped me grow as a person, and has helped me become more confident in myself.
Through the constant harassment from the player I realized that I had to take some course of action to prevent myself from falling victim to this for the rest of the year. I could not earn respect by playing soccer because I was not a starter for the team nor did the seniors support me, hence the situation I was in. I realize they may have been a better way to go about this but I felt hopeless and frustrated with all the continuous bullying that I could no longer stand it. Due to this whole semester of bullying from this player I had a strong sense of dissent towards the players on team not allowing me to have a team bond that I experienced before this year. I hindered greatly from having confidence of myself which ultimately led me to have a indifferent beginning to my high school career.
I know how it feels to be left out, and let me tell you, it’s not fun. This year, I have been working my hardest to be someone others can lean on. My main goal right now is to be a friend to everyone. Sometimes, it’s hard to go and talk to the new girl or sit by the boy on the end of the table, because we fear that others will judge us for it, but in reality, that is far from true. When people see that you are kind and caring, they will begin to look up to you.
I won't be stopped by the ignorance or hatred that is so prevalent in todays society, I will become the best person I can be. Everything I need to do this is already inside me, it's my mentality, my work ethic, my motivation, it'll take me to the top. I want to be like Ghandi, I want to be like Muhammad Ali, and I fully know the only barrier standing in my way is myself, that's why every day I'm in a constant battle with myself to get better. I'm under constant development and extremely focused on my goals, in life there are no excuses, no matter the environment you're born into, it's your duty to overcome the circumstances. So I don't waste my time, I'm on a path to enlightenment, always developing, I will change the world, I can't accept being a slave to society and not leaving a legacy, I will be happy with my impact when I'm laying on my deathbed.
But on the whole, I wouldn’t bet on me to win anything. I consider myself as an experienced loser. I am not ashamed of being a loser. When you are a consistent loser, you don’t tend to pursue activities and hobbies to win, you pursue them for the experience. As I mentioned, my Mock Trial team is the epitome of the word loser.
I did great on that game, sadly I couldn’t get a goal for myself, but my teammates and coach kind words made me happy. I have gained my confidence back. The lesson affected me in a good way. I learned not to give up no matter how tough it is. Nothing is impossible when you put in hard work.
