I have marched with the Pride of the Hill band since my Freshman year, and experienced some marching in eighth grade, and it isn’t as easy as it seems. I remember watching my siblings march when they were in high school and I was still in primary and intermediate, and I used to think that it looked easy and that it wasn’t really a sport or anything. But after experiencing it myself I realized the amount of work you put into it, the teamwork needed to accomplish things, and the competitions where you hope that all of the hard work, from band camp in the summer, the early morning practices during the week, and the Thursday night rehearsals during the
because I was born in the suburbs I went to private school but they didn’t know deep down we all have struggles within ourselves. Other kids that weren’t as fortunate as me saw me as cocky.

How there is no I in team no matter what kind of team that may be. Soccer also made me a more physically strong person because I play defense I just won’t accept someone scoring in my goal. Every time I step onto a soccer field I feel strong and proud not only for me but for my team as well because we all have put our blood sweet and tears into this sport to go as far as we have. With this year being my senior year of high school I hope we can go all the way and win the championship this year. The most important lesson I learned from soccer is how you get what you work for, if you cut corner during practice then be prepared to play those who might have not cut corners and for them to be in better

In SADD I am responsible for hanging posters around the school to raise awareness for thing like: drunk and distracted driving, STDs, drug use and it 's affects, healthy relationships, and suicide prevention.

On a hot game day in Athens Georgia where is the most likely place you can find Carine? Marching with the Redcoat band of course!

I had wanted those seasons to end so I could be done with the humility of playing on junior varsity, but now there isn’t much time left.
