    At five or six years old I was not competitively cheering, instead I was staring up adorningly at my cousin- who is 13 years my senior – while she cheered on her high school football team. It was because of her that I started my own long journey in cheerleading. Her high school hosted a “Kid’s camp” for the cheer squad to teach a group of elementary school children some cheers to perform at a half-time show.

    On day two of retreat, my group and I went on the high roped course, which I was really excited for.
