Even, some consider cheerleading as just a “hobby,”but competitive cheer has helped me grow as an individual. I learned dedication, time management, sacrifices. I spent countless hours in the gym working on skills to be the best. If there is any lesson that cheerleading teaches you, it is how to be the best as a team and individually. You have to be determined and dedicated to be successful.
We first-borns are perfectionists, consequently, we feel the pressure to be the best. I always felt like I had to set an example for my younger sister. I wanted her to look up to me with pride, so ever since I was little I tried to be good to my parents, teachers, and friends. I dedicated myself to everything I did, like school and sports. I gave it all my best effort so I could inspire my sister to do the same.
Which is needed desperately especially when an obstacle is thrown into a player’s way. Perseverance is what our coaches preach to us every day because it is so important and is needed for us to be successful. Perseverance is what gets you up for 6am workouts, it gets you through the week when it’s been ruff. I have had many times in football where I had gotten a flag thrown on me and the next play I had push through the disappointment of getting one. Because I have and will be hit with many obstacles throughout life and learning to preserver will help me grow as I continue into adulthood.
I consecutively display leadership skills daily in practice and while performing. For example, when one of my teammates is struggling or not grasping the concept, I take it into my hands to work with them vigorously until they achieve their full potential. In like manner, I motivate my cheer sisters when they are down and reassure the team, as a whole, to walk in the spirit of excellence. To include, I feel that a leader is not someone who stands in front and dictates their group, but rather stands right next to their followers and goes through the battles with them. Additionally, I exemplify a respectful young lady in and out of uniform because I have noticed the little girls idolizing me and mimicking every move I make.
The hard work and dedication put in by the girls is outstanding. Furthermore, they’ve committed their lives to the gym. Consequently, their dedication paid off. I have always loved sports. I try my very best to work hard at them.
Therefore, people who have passion and perseverance and those who have taught and learned, achieve their long-term goal. I still agree with Duckworth idea about having and testing out grit to become better in life. On a personal experience, I was always struggling through high school. My goal was to be able to walk across the stage with my friends and graduate. So no matter what, I overcame every obstacle that was holding me back from my goal and I was able to graduate with my
I wasn’t going to win unless I began to work hard. This realization agreed with what my coaches always said, “There is no shortcut to success.” After taking this to heart, I began to practice like it was my last practice. This mindset paid off, and I then won several matches in a row. Wrestling was an important life experience. It taught me to be intelligent, resilient, and humble, but, most importantly,
I loved that they showed all the people in the community she worked with helping her spell the final word. Akeelah and the Bee showcases the message of the courage it takes to overcome obstacles in life,the importance of being who you are, and that these traits will help you reach your goals. Akeelah accomplishes this with help from the community and by proving the stereotypes wrong. This successful movie has given other girls like Akeelah to not let other people or ideas stop them from doing the things that make them who they
Zig Ziglar once said, “When you catch a glimpse of your potential, that's when your passion is born.” When you find something that you're good at and that you love, you’re driven to do it for the rest of your life. For me, it's cheerleading. I’ve learned so many things, not only about myself, but about other people and what I want in life from cheerleading. It’s safe to say being a cheerleader has impacted every single area in my life, for the better. If you would've told my ten year- old self that today I would be a cheerleader and love every single minute of it, she would’ve laughed and then probably thrown herself off of a cliff.
They truly are a full year commitment to garner optimal success. The two sports required me to be strong a determined. It important to have commendable weight room strength, but a will to win and overcome the opponent was even more crucial. Both of my coaches for the sports made a positive, memorable impact on my life. Mr. Allen and Mr. Zajac both taught me life lessons and helped me grow up.

What do you think was your biggest contribution as a team member while you played at Batavia High School? While participating in athletics at Batavia I believe my greatest contributions to the team were my work ethic and positivity. I may not have always been been the best athlete, but my teammates could always count on me to work as hard as I possibly could.
