Yes, I did make friends or I did become a better player, but I also learned how to become more confident about myself. For example, when you are in an environment with no one that you know, what do you do? Well you’re first reaction is probably to confine yourself, but then you might think, “oh I really could try to make some friends.” This is an exact representation of how I felt the first day of softball practice, better known as torture. None of the girls knew me, therefore I did not know any of them. I was feeling my anxiety level rising, my whole body getting weak, and the thought of wanting to cry was to its max.
In fact, I hardly even moved even though I was terrified of what was coming as I might be losing someone who had been there for me since I was a kid but from that point onward, I vowed that I would do anything and everything to please my mother and make her proud of me.Every subsequent award won and every honor bestowed upon me has been inspired by the recollection of my mother's plight. I look to her as a driving force of motivation. In her I see the firm, enduring qualities of courage, strength, hope, and especially
My mother is my biggest role model in my life. She has taught me many lessons such as to be compassionate, to have a hard work ethic, and to make life a laugh out of everything. I look up to her in many ways and I can’t thank her enough for all she does for me. Now yes, it is okay to have your role model as a famous person, but when it’s someone that you know personally it is way more meaningful. My mother has not only been my role model in these three ways, but many more ways.
All these chapters in my life have made the person of who i am today. Of course it had it's up's and downs to get here and more up and downs to look forward in life. But boy do you learn so much of it just to get where you really want to be and show everyone how you become this person everyone doubted about. I’d like to start from what I remember when i was a young little girl who never knew had a half sister, I always thought I was an only child. Until I went to Mexico for vacations and I met her and my grandmas house, she was very beautiful and so different from by looks and personality.
These are all things that have made me into the person I am today and it all began on the soccer field. For many years of my life all I did was play soccer. I kicked around a soccer ball in my house, rushed out to the field to play during recess, and then went to practice after school. I was constantly playing and making new friends outside of the classroom. Some of the friends I’ve made playing youth soccer have become my best friends now.
Therefore, I never learned to do things on my own, especially important events like obstacles and challenges. Having a younger sister allowed me to take care of myself without others assisting me the whole way through and to watch out for others. I slowly adjusted to the “role model” my parents wanted me to become, someone my younger sister could to look up to. I began helping my family in numerous ways such as entertaining my younger sister, feeding her, and keeping her away from potential hazards. I, like many older siblings, am committed to helping younger peers grow and adjust to the high school life by giving advice and comfort.
Finding new friends was not easy for me, because people here are not friendly, but in my culture we usually do not make new friends with ease. Here I have learned how to not fight yourself to become a new friend and to be yourself as a symbol that everyone wants to be. One day before I left the city, I tried to gather the necessary things as important documents, clothes and stuff with me. It was a long journey and the first in my life alone, but I was very excited and curious to visit the new
In fact by the age of 15 I was one two different elite competition squads, one was my studio, while the other was the varsity high school team. On top of that I was taking around three hours or dance classes each night of the week. I even thought about transferring to an Art School, where I could dance during the class day, and get credit, by learning about the different dance styles. Overall to say the least, I was very dedicated to the sport of dance and tried my hardest to be the best dance expert. In fact I thought I was the best dancer.
Life isn’t always easy and fair. It has ups and downs that stand to happiness and sadness but of course life must go on. Despite of everything that life those to me I’m still strong and always heavy for it. Just like this experience of mine that really stand as an inspiration for me every day. When I was a little boy, I really wanted to become a basketball player but many people didn’t trust on my ability.
