Cheerleading allows me to participate in activities that contribute to worthwhile programs within my community as well. The team participates in the Smiles program that allows downs syndrome kids to cheer with my school team on game nights. I was also able to organize a group to participate in the Susan G Komen Walk for the Cure which carried significant importance to me since my grandmother passed away from breast cancer. These have been outstanding experiences that I might not have been involved with if I was not participating in cheer. When I started cheerleading, I thought it was all about winning the trophy
Unfortunately, failure came before success. This experience has aided me in all other aspects of my life, because it serves as an encouragement whenever something does not go as planned. Having been apart of different cheer teams for about 5 year. Some of my accomplishments would include first place at nationals, first place winner at state, and first overall best at UCA camp. I was even able to make the SACS Varsity cheer team, which is an unforgettable experience knowing that they are one of the best in town.
1 in 10 students dropout of school because of repeated bullying. My survival experience is still going on today and has been for the past 8 years. I’ve tried going to councilors and talking to my parents, but nothing worked. I guess all I have left is to just get through middle school and hopefully it gets better in high school. Like most, I am a very healthy, average 13 year old girl.
I had humbly won first place in all of my dance steps. After I stepped off the stage, my arms filled with trophies, I witnessed my mom talking to the other Irish dance moms. When we were leaving, my mom was telling me what the other moms had said about me. They had said how they knew that nationals was coming up, and I had to learn all new dances (since I had moved up a level) to be ready in time. They said how I would never be able to accomplish this because I couldn't learn the steps in such a short amount of time.
Senior year of high school, the year that every person under the age of 18 longs for. I can remember mine vividly. The colors maroon and black and white were everywhere throughout our spirit filled halls. Usually most people would be able to remember there’s for positive reasons. Now don’t get me wrong, I did have a good high school experience; however this isn’t about the good times I had.
I especially enjoyed witnessing all the hardworking girls ,just like myself, strive for their dream. Every little gymnasts’ dream, including mine, was to go to the Olympics, to compete at the college level and achieve overall greatness in the sport of gymnastics. However, as I got older and progressed through the sport, that dream that every little girl dreams about started to slowly slip away. The reality was that by the time I had reached 8th grade I was no longer at my pinnacle. I had hit the dreaded growth spurt.
Everyone in high school looks to one thing their whole 4 years of high school that is graduation I never really realized it till it hit me I 'm a senior in high school and I have no idea what I am doing I have a 2.0 GPA and I never really took school seriously I 've learned a lot of very important lessons these past 4 years.The first thing I learned is to enjoy life at the moment because time flies very quickly in the blink of an eye you 're all grown up. The second thing I learned was you should have fun but not too much fun there are things I regret and then there are the things I know I did right. I 've made some really bad decisions but I 've also made some really good ones Mistakes are a major fear for us humans but if we didn 't make mistakes we wouldn 't ever learn.There are gonna be times when we 're scared but there 's nothing bigger than fear than fear its self. Imagine when I was a child I wanted to ride a bike,but I was afraid of falling so my parents added training wheels then when I was older they took them off I got on it without the trading wheels and I fell I hurt myself pretty bad I didn 't ever want to go back on that bike again but my brother encouraged me to do it so one day I grabbed the bike and I got on it and forgot all about the fact that the training wheels were off I rode it and I didn 't fall from that day on I rode my bike and I 'd fall here and there but I kept on doing it till I didn 't anymore if I 'd never gotten the courage to
Entering high school my freshman year, many things were new to me, and I wasn’t sure what I was going to get involved in as a student. The only thing I was sure of was that I was going to play high school soccer. I’d been playing soccer since I was about 8 years old, and finally having the ability to play for the high school I grew up watching was exhilarating. My main goal going into the soccer program was that I wanted to make the varsity soccer team by my senior year in high school- my brother had been a former varsity player, and I greatly wanted to fill his shoes and leave my mark at the school. Throughout my four years in the program, that was my main focus, but I was happy to discover that I was also making friends along the way.
Did you participate in track in high school? My daughter has been doing track for three years now (both indoor and outdoor) and has done every hurdle distance, 200 meter sprint, relays, and this year the triple jump. I think that she prefers the triple jump out of all of the events. Like you, I want to learn how to teach mathematics to all grades/ages. I love math- just not statistics!
This year I was honored to be the captain of the cheerleading team in Zapata High School. We started since June in the summer to try to perfect the simple stunts needed to know before we got to the more challenging and difficult ones. This was not easy for us, we failed and failed until the 100th time, we would finally stick the stunt. I would blame this entirely on the fact that not all the cheerleaders have taken physics in high school with Mrs. Pangi. If all of the team would’ve known at least the basics of physics, we wouldn’t struggle as much in the stunting area of cheerleading.
After I opened up to my teacher and she told me all of the amazing fundraising opportunities, it was decided; I was going to try out for the competition team. I was never the best dancer, but I was still pretty good at the branches of dance that I did. I was ecstatic when I found out I made the team; it was like the world stopped spinning for a minute. That was
Girls third through sixth grade sign up every year to cheer for the four quarters of every football game, along with doing a routine to entertain fans at halftime. I began cheering for this program in the third grade. I remember the pride I felt while wearing my Cardinal uniform (that was five years old, smelled bad, and was three sizes too big for me.) Each year I worked hard to
Ther are many opportunities to compete in public speaking, talent and pageant competitions. The first big competition I entered was the Junior Miss Oklahoma pageant when I was fifteen. My Bethel chose me to represent them in this statewide competition. They trained me on how to walk and how to make friends with other girls. I was so nervous the whole weekend of the competition.
It 's about how hard you 're willing to work for it.” This is a cliche with a lot of meaning and motivation. These inspiring words are crucial to my own success. I was an all-star cheerleader for 11 years before my parents eventually ran out of the time and money to pay for my two sisters and I. I finished cheering my freshman year, and also started dancing. In past years, I took an interest in the high school dance team. I decided to join my freshman year, and instantaneously fell in love with the
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.
