“I’m still cheering to this day.”

“Tell us about a time that you tried something new and it turned out better than you thought it would.” 

For me, that was in seventh grade when I started cheerleading. I’m in 11th grade now, but seventh grade, when my mom made me do cheerleading and I’ve never done anything, like, even close to cheerleading. Maybe like a cheer camp once when I was, like, three or something, but I’ve never done anything close and I was so nervous that it was gonna go, like, really poorly and I thought I was gonna be cut from the team and then I found out that everyone makes it and I was like, “Oh my God.” And then I just became obsessed with cheer, like, I – every – all the skills that we did, all the chants, even just cheering on the sidelines at the basketball games, which sucked at the moment, but like, I actually enjoyed all of it and it turned out a lot better than I thought and I’m still cheering to this day. I’m on the varsity team. So that is pretty cool and it turned out a lot better than I thought it would.
