The Northeast Conference sponsored a speaker to present to the student-athletes here at Robert Morris University. The speaker was Dr. Derek Greenfield, who is a motivational speaker specializing in inclusive excellence and positive change. Dr. Greenfield travels around the country speaking to people about improving relations among groups of diverse individuals. At Robert Morris, his goal was to bring the athletic department together as a whole by helping everyone to become more accepting of others, therefore bringing the athletes together much like a family.

My passion for track and field began with a Nike advertisement. At age ten, I opened the newspaper to a two-page spread of the hometown distance running legend Steve Prefontaine overlaid by a paragraph of inspirational copy. It concluded asking, “Where is the Next Pre?” The story of his small town Oregon roots, gutsy racing style, and ambition to be the best resonated with me like nothing ever had before. I told myself I was the next Pre, and then tore off for my first run through the streets of Eugene, Oregon – “Tracktown USA”.

I have been playing soccer since before I could even walk. In fact, I joined my first soccer team at the age of five. Soccer is something I have always loved and been passionate about. When I was on the co-ed recreation league teams I was one of the only girls on my team, so I had to compete with boys who doubted me and thought I was weak. I worked hard during practice and out of practice to become better and, eventually, I became more aggressive than them. My eighth-grade year, I tried out for the school’s co-ed soccer team and was confident that I would make the team. During the three hard days of try-outs, I pushed myself to improve each day and received several compliments from the coaches. On the last day, the head coach pulled me aside to tell me

North Andrew hadn’t been to a state championship game since the early 90’s. This isn’t acceptable in a small football town like mine. Everyone knew something had to change. It wasn’t until my sophomore year in 2012 that we finally made it back to a state championship. We had a new coach that year and a lot of talent. Our new coach worked our butts off, harder than any other 8 man team in the state. This was difficult for all of us but we later learned that hard work really pays off.

Reading an endless passage of texts allows the readers to give up for many reasons from not being engaged or being convinced of the beneficial aspect of the text is due to the lack of good writing. The definition of “good writing” can confuse people by being too broad. My belief of good writing is writing that compels an audience to feel interested, motivated, or deeply connected through the composed text.

A Discourse community is living to a certain role or “identity kit” they upholds themselves with the driven skills, values, and beliefs to their community. Davis’s text emphasizes on the connection between the target Discourse community
One night at baseball practice, competition elevated my level of play to where it needed to be. That night, for the most part had not been my night. I had been missing routine ground balls and throwing the ball off target constantly. It felt like I could do nothing right, until coach called for a fielding contest. Even though I had been struggling, now that every play mattered I hit my stride. I tracked balls down and fired crisp and accurate throws on every play. As more and more people were eliminated, I became more and more stimulated by the competitive energy of the contest. Finally, I reached the point where I would win the contest if I fielded one more ball. I scampered across the field and snatched the ball as I ran into the netting that had been left from batting practice. I untangled myself and made the winning throw. Even though I had been down all night, a competition allowed me to refocus and harness my skills and allow me to reach a level I would have never gotten to without it. Competition makes people better and allows them to reach heights never thought possible, and heights that would never be reached if they were not forced to push themselves to be their best
