She gladly replied with yes. At first, I was really slow, but under Christina’s help, I became faster in swimming. She stayed after practice with me and taught me how to improve in my freestyle, my diving, and my flip-turns. It was hard work, and we were both exhausted after practice, but she told me if I kept this up, I could go to meets. After all of the training sessions, I felt ready to go to a meet.

We began remaking the robot parts that had broken the day before. The first problem came from our electronics. The computer wasn 't responding to our commands.

We decided the robot was ready to go and put the robot up for the night.

My hands wouldn’t keep still, every time I wiped the sweat off them, it would be replaced within seconds it seemed. I was scared if you listened close enough, you could hear the pounding of my heart threatening to burst out my chest. But who can’t keep calm when it’s their first game? We were all nervous, families, and friends came to watch us start the season off. We were playing with only a few mistakes that night, and we worked together as a team, as a result we won our first game.
We lost twice the rest of the season and won seven games. Moreover, we had much more camaraderie. Despite feeling like a failure at first, I knew I could not give up with all these kids and their parents counting on me. I had to change what I did by putting my leadership and coaching skills to the test, developing moxie and confidence during the process. I never knew that a few third graders would teach me one of the most valuable lessons in my life: learning from failure to create
I did not expect even to be qualified for the round considering my age and physique, but my grueling amounts of practice that I had done before, and my dedication to Karate, that I still continue, really paid off. That was a proud moment for me, my parents and my coach. At the same time, nothing could have prepared me for the pain I was about to experience in the Sparring round. In the Sparring round, my first few fights were manageable as I used my small stature and my skills to weave around a lot of my opponent’s attacks. But by the 7th fight I was gasping for air.
I walk into Neil Armstrong Middle School 's gym, nervous as can be, not ready for tryouts. We started doing layup drills, I missed so many compared to the other girls.

Our first practice was mostly getting to know each other.
But it wasn’t long before investigators determined that these were real cops who had committed the rip-off. Real cops who had committed the murders. Real cops who would go down in history as the Miami River Cops – or as they liked to call themselves, “The Enterprise” – the most notorious gang of corrupt cops ever to don the badge in Miami. Within a month after the bodies were found floating in the river, ten Miami police officers were being investigated. By the end of the year, five cops had been arrested.
I began the program while my son was almost 1 years old. I was dedicated to waking up around 4:00am each day to allow myself enough time to study before my classes and my school day would end at 3:00pm in which I would go back home to watch my son while my husband went to work. Keeping up with this schedule was very difficult and even more so when unexpected dilemmas would arise such as getting the flu, being up all night with a teething baby and or seasonal allergies for myself and or the baby. I would have to really strategize to try to make up for the time lost and sometimes I was unable to make up the time and it would affect my grades. Every semester was goal was to get straight A’s but with balancing school and a child, sometimes there just were not enough hours in the day to get perfect grades.
