What would you most like to be interviewed about? My cheer career and my hobby of hunting and shooting would be something I would like to be interviewed on. Also, my resent trip to Hershey for states!
What inspiring things about you does your nomination not cover? End of 6th grade I broke my arm. Just getting ready to move and switch school districts with plans of joining the Jr High squad I was not able to try out. I had quit tumbling and spent 9 months in therapy. I was able to join the cheer squad but with limitations. I had to over come those limitations by working hard but in pain. I was at a slight handicap because my arm never fully straighten, so I was never able to play any other sports due to my arm. 2 years ago I started having more pain and numbness which lead us back to the doctor for answers. Come to find out i still had a broken elbow & torn ligaments that needed repair. After my recovery I am back to cheering and tumbling. I feel that my strength, dedication and love for cheer pulled me through.
If you were to present a topic to a group of your peers, what would it be and why? A topic I would press to my peers in my stand against drug abuse. I definitely find this topic most relevant in today society.
