Although I would be considered a minority at that school, I never felt inferior because of my racial identity. Although, one African American student tried to challenge me about the rules of basketball. We argued whether the offensive player could dribble the ball again after the defender touches the ball.
My coach told me to pass the ball to my teammates, even though I was scoring a ton of points. I apologized to my coach and to my teammates for being a ball hog. I promised all of them that I would be a better team player for the second half of the game. After our talk, my coach and team got my adrenaline going again by starting basketball chants. We were on our way out of the locker room for the second half, and as the lights shined down on me, the crowd chanted my name.
He was a midget, short and lightweight. Even though he was physically small he had a strong heart. He instantly got people’s attention by using his talent in a positive way.

Whenever people gathered either it was around the fireplace or at the dinner table people would always mention the name Daniel Boone.
Secondly, Lupe ran home threw her backpack down with her homework and dashed straight up to her room to practice setting aside school which she loves, to practice that's surprising. Also, Lupe worked so hard her thumb became swollen with muscle showing she tried hard on every practice shot and exercise. Second reason Lupe is a role model is she is a good sport. For instance, Lupe is a good sport because the story said “ She beat her first opponent easily, and felt sorry for the girl because she didn’t have anyone to cheer for her” and
In the next line, however, he changes direction again, saying that the two are so alike that “they weren’t alike at all” (13). These repeated switches leave the reader uncertain as to what is really meant.

I saw the other kids throwing lasers to each other and I knew I was accurate, but couldn’t throw nearly as fast. My hand was shaking as I threw to someone I had never met.

They thought, "[Mademoiselle Reisz] was a disagreeable little woman, no longer young, who had quarreled with almost everyone, owing to a temper which was self-assertive and a disposition to trample upon the rights to others"(43). Mademoiselle Reisz contradicts all the characteristics women are thought to have. She isn’t timid or sweet, and she is completely independent.

“I embraced my role as the insubordinate who sleepwalked her way through the 30-minute mile. The mediocre grades I consistently received in PE were anchors that weighed down my otherwise spotless academic record.” Megan was a slacker when it came to physical education and when she joined wrestling she thought she would achieve something great just like her father did. She may have failed all those times wrestling, but she achieved something great for herself. “I still wrestle from time to time, but exclusively for sexual purposes. I still lose every time.
