When I got the news that cheer tryouts were coming up I was all over them, and I was practicing everyday at home on splits and toe touches and a lot more. I had my mind set that I was going to make the cheer team. I was one that wanted to show off my school. As time passed the day got closer it was one day away! The day got here and i got off the bus to go to tryouts and then they had to explain everything to us of what we were doing and how you could make the team.

Cheerleading allows me to participate in activities that contribute to worthwhile programs within my community as well. The team participates in the Smiles program that allows downs syndrome kids to cheer with my school team on game nights. I was also able to organize a group to participate in the Susan G Komen Walk for the Cure which carried significant importance to me since my grandmother passed away from breast cancer. These have been outstanding experiences that I might not have been involved with if I was not participating in cheer. When I started cheerleading, I thought it was all about winning the trophy
My first cross country race was finally over and I thought to myself, why did I join this sport? Junior year was my first season of cross country.

for the first two years I always complained “It's so boring” and stuff like “don't force me to go again” but I got my stubbornness from my parents, so I kept going. It took a long time for me to stop complaining and realize that nothing is really “girly”. It wasn't until my fourth year that i realized it was something i really enjoyed. the dance shoppe has weekly hour long classes, usually just practicing, learning new steps, and combos and stuff. Then once it hits christmas break, we start to learn our dance.
I went in with a negative attitude, but I remember walking out of that gym after every practice having accomplished something new. After a few months my jumps got higher, my stunt group had the highest basket toss, I got a back-tuck. Everything fell into its place, and I finally discovered what I loved most.

I’m now a captain and three year cheerleader at Brighton, 2 year United Spirit Association All-American Athlete, and planning to cheer in college.
I went to school all dressed up in my homecoming outfit, once I got to school the nerves came onto me and I started shaking with anxiety. Everyone was pumped for the game that night, there was a pep fest at the end of the school day that pumped us up. During the pep fest, while everyone was getting pumped up, my stomach was turning in all different directions with nerves and I couldn’t focus on getting pumped up because all I could think about was messing up and getting laughed or yelled

Over 700 000 000 $ worldwide has so far been raised, and every bit was helpful. So far there has been no cure for cancer, so this fight against cancer will continue even after these runs. It is a long road to take, but nonetheless a worthy one to follow. “I 've been running the Terry Fox runs outside of the school for awhile now, even bringing my son along with me since he could walk,” said Ms. Phan, an avid supporter of the run.
Although Chester and Wilson did not accept Lilly at first, she remained loyal to who she was. Later, they accepted her differences and they became good
So I enrolled in a school, it was supposed to be one of the happiest days of my life but it was not. At the beginning of school year, I did not have any friends and to make it worse, I got bullied. They bullied me on how I dressed especially my accent. Females even males were picking a fight with me. I wanted to tell my mom but I did not want her to worry.
