To begin with she is a good sport is that she doesn't give up and even when she is bad at stuff like running. In the story it states “No matter how much she tried, she couldn't run as fast as the other girls” Lupe tries her best and doesn't do good. I bet some of the other kids make fun of her because she isn't as good as them or that she scored a ball in the other team’s goal. Lupe doesn't let that stuff get to her, she works harder. In addition to that she practices for hours, doing push-ups, squeezing erasers and shooting marbles.
A professor described how we two year old kid always likes to jump from crazy places and try to land as “funny” as possible. Her question was why don’t we ever hear of young children tearing their ACLs. DiStefano explained that due to their age, their tissues are a lot more resistant.

She was humbled because her parents never gave her praise to protect her brother. She was made kinder and had the desire to stick up for the less fortunate because she had to stick up for her brother.

Despite this, she never lost her individualistic nature.
The first wave was normal sized and not to crazy so she surfed on it like a champ. Eventually, the waves got bigger and bigger until suddenly she fell off of her board and her score decreased. When she got out of the water she was full of anger and sadness. “Don’t feel down”, I said. “You did your best and I will get our score up, just watch”.
Laverne Cox is a role model for everyone. People of any gender or orientation can see part of themselves in her, because the characteristics she portrays, and the way she puts herself out there for the world. She is a strong, kind, encouraging voice that is often not heard in Hollywood. Many have seen her on the TV series Orange is the New Black playing the role of Sophia Burset, a black transgender woman in prison. She does excellent in the TV series, but that is not the extent of her work or worth, nor the point here.
In Marble Champ by Gary Soto, We see Lupe persevere, keep practicing, and have ambition. I think the theme is never give up. One reason why she had perseverance is she failed at sports, got back up and tried again. Another reason why she had perseverance is she wasn't good at sports but kept trying.

In “Don’t Give Up The Fight” the theme is being different.
In this book, Gerald gets abused by his drunk father. He wants to get rid of him, but Monique, the mother is very loyal to Jordan and defends him. This makes Gerald’s life miserable, and the only thing that brings a smile to his face is his step-sister, Angel, whom he possesses and cares for. Therefore, referring to some parts, and experience as a person, I can state that loyalty doesn’t always go both ways. Many people do not care if loyalty doesn’t return to them.

The expulsion of Callie from the cheerleading squad due of her disability was an unjust choice due to jealousy, efficiency, and the purpose of cheerleading. Cheerleading should not be about the person 's ability to jump and do tumbles, but their ability to rile up the crowd. Because Callie never failed to ignite the school spirit, she should not have been kicked from the squad. Provided she can perform well, “Callie should not be excluded from cheerleading” (185). Although her cerebral palsy limits the type of movements she can enact, the way she moves her wheelchair up and down increases the school spirit, theoretically making her the best performer.
