Easy to encounter, not so easy to overcome, failures claw at hopes and successes. They bring down those who are weak enough to let them in. They strengthen those that can get past them. I got past one that almost ruined my chances for new opportunities.
Which led to me becoming more independent as I started to get more involved in my School. I can say I’ve experienced a lot positively and negatively getting hurt during my sophomore year really affected me but the way I’ve worked back showed my determination and
This past year I joined the sorority Kappa Delta. I never thought I would enjoy being in an organization as much as I do now. Kappa Delta has allowed me to get more involved with my school and my community. I enjoy working with the Girl Scouts and the Child Advocacy Center of Hamilton County. Getting involved on campus was something that I wanted to accomplish this year and with Kappa Delta I have been able
Initially, my mind was set to join the soccer team. However, I found out there weren’t any openings available. The only team that had an opening was The Cross Country Team. I was terrified…my parents encouraged me to join as there wasn’t an option not to.
As a result, I fulfilled my dream of entering a university to study my degree. My next effect of coming to the US happened because of all the people I met at the
My senior year I decided to tryout for the soccer team. I thought I had a pretty good chance in making the soccer team since I’ve had some experience playing soccer, and I thought I was pretty good. Anyway, I ended up making the team, and their were some times I felt like quitting because we did ran so much, but luckly I had my friends who motivated
In life, failures sometimes happen. It happens to everyone. However, failures don’t define us as a person, but it builds you as one from those experiences. In my seventeen years, I have experienced my own share of blunders, each teaching me a new lesson. The person who succeeds without first failing hasn't really learned anything; in failures, there can be a learning experience and an opportunity to grow.
Audition day came and I made it onto the team. But a couple weeks later I found out that the dance studio closed. I was so bummed out, and I thought that I would never have that opportunity again. But I had hope that I would get the opportunity, and sure enough a new dance studio opened, and I danced competitive for my team last year! That really made me believe that you should never give up on your dreams
Can you feel everyone 's eyes on you? Can you see the instructor 's face evaluating you? Feel the tension, feel your ego bristle and waver”. I stopped being eager to learn new things , I stopped showing up and dressing for practice, and I also came up with excuses to not cheer publicly. I stayed
My mother looked for places for me to do a cheer at, but she couldn’t find any, a few years later we moved here. I was so excited in sixth grade when I found out that they had cheered at the school, but you had to wait until seventh grade to try out. I was eagerly waiting all year in sixth grade. When cheer tryouts came the next year I was the first one waiting to try out.
During my last year of middle school at Drew Freeman my life changed. I was exposed to a wonderful opportunity. I was given the chance to take a test that would determine
Overcoming “The” Struggle I don’t recall having a hard time learning how to read. It was one of those things that just came easily to me for some reason. For the most part I enjoyed reading as well. The only time I didn’t enjoy reading was when I didn’t understand a certain word or a certain phrase.
At the beginning of my sophomore year, August 2015, I fractured my left ankle. My second season of cross country had just begun. The whole team had a Saturday practice at Atlanta Memorial Park. We came to this park for a time trial. Not being able to run was going to be a challenge for me. I loved running, and seeing myself not run was going to be hard for me.
