While skating, I am frequently expected to finish drills in which I count my exercises on my own. Because I believe in doing excellent work, I always do each and every
I met other girls that were “middles” as well. We began to work on elbow position, timing, and approaches; I found that I had a lot of common with them. In order to be successful, bonding with those other girls was necessary and I discovered I was having fun. I met a girl from Wisconsin who was also a middle. We shared skills, encouraged each other to do our best during our games and by the end of the camp I told her, “It was very nice to meet you, and thank you for staying with and encouraging me during these three days.” I discovered that sharing similar interests bonded the team enabling us to work together.
To my luck, my Mom agreed to find me a gym to join the sport when I was in second grade.

Through the four years as a high school cheerleading coach, I developed a new cheerleading program by promoting events and secured sponsors for team expenses, all the while infusing the essence of team work in the members and improvising their techniques. By coaching I have developed strong organizational, communication, and interpersonal skills, in addition to good observational and motivational dexterity. These skills will allow me to effectively schedule sessions, communicate successfully with clients, clients’ caregivers, supervisors, and clinicians.

From fall 2015 to late spring 2016, I ran the children’s ministry program, GROW, at my church.
