Following my eighth grade year I was detrimmed to put all the years of failure behind me. Freshman year was going to be a new start. That whole summer I went to camps and every clinqne I could. My level of play was progressing and I was feeling more confident going into high school. My freshman year was here and it was time to fight for a starting spot.
Ever since I was a little girl I was involved in dance. From attending Melinda’s School of Dance in Humboldt to Michelle’s Dance Connection in Algona and then going back to Humboldt to Chanterella’s Dance Studio. I’ve alway dreamt of being on the danz squad. During my eighth grade year, I was so excited because that was the year I was able to try out. The try-outs were in the spring so I wanted school to hurry fastly.
Jasmin is my old sister she is two years older than me even though we have are ups and downs, she means the world to me. She has very curly hair that makes her look like a lion at times. She is a very outgoing person in high school she was a cheerleader and she won homecoming queen her senior year I look up to her a lot. Growing up it was just always me my sister Jasmin and my little brother Antonio and mom being a single mother we learn to get along most of the time. By being sister and having to share things we would fight but I have learned that nobody can ever take her place.
I’ve spent the last thirteen years falling. Most of the time I defy gravity, but there are many times when I don’t, and land flat on my back instead. One of the first times I experienced this was at five years old, when my mother enrolled me and my sister into a gymnastics class. At the time, for my mom this decision seemed like the right thing to do; her daughters would stay active and healthy from a young age just as she did growing up. Little did my mom know that almost thirteen years later I would still be in love with the sport.
Firehawk Cheer The Harding Fine Arts cheerleading team is going into it’s fifth year at the school and it’s second year of competing. It started with just four girls practicing in Ms. Burris’s room and has since grown to a team of eighteen on Varsity this year and a still-growing JV team. Last September, Varsity went to their first ever regional cheer competition. On their first year of competing, they were only a few points shy of qualifying for the state competition and stunned the crowd with their skills and dedication. This year, Varsity is slightly smaller than the year before with several dedicated alternates ready to take someone’s place at a moment’s notice.
As a senior in high school, I had assumed that I knew everything about the sport I had been around my entire life, cheerleading, but when football season ended that year, things changed. I told my coaches that I needed to focus on school and work, needing to prepare for college the next year. Nevertheless, I offered to help with practices, if they would allow me to do so. I was granted the title of team advisor, and given the ability to attend the competitions free of charge. During practices, I assisted with spotting new stunts and changing rounds, helping critique.
Gymnastics has been a part of my life since I was three, and it has always been an enormous commitment. In high school I decided to join my school 's gymnastics team. My school isn 't known for having an amazing gymnastics team, and we had never won a City Championship Title. During my freshman year, two of the teams who participated in the City Championship meet with us, were huge rivals. My team and I knew we couldn 't beat either of these teams but we were very intrigued to find out who would win.
Even when I was still in diapers, I remember how much I had gawked at the girls in high school who wore their cheerleading uniforms with pride. I knew at first glance that becoming a cheerleader was something that I was going to do when I was older. Some of my earliest memories include myself cheering at a Utah State University basketball game. I saw those cheerleaders as individuals with not only an excess of talent and school spirit but also as role models and some of my biggest idols. This dream never left, as was evident when I tried out for the Skyview Cheer Team while still in eighth grade.
Although, I thoroughly enjoy working for Children’s Homecare especially the families I work for, I cannot advance my career without further education. In the last few years, I have found it difficult to work more hours, take care of my family and go to school. My husband works hard to provide for our family, nonetheless, in today’s world you need both parents working to financially make ends meet. I am scheduled to graduate May of 2018 from Stark State College with an associate’s degree in nursing. I plan to continue my education and work on my bachelor degree in nursing, while working as an RN.
