I loved reading your essay. I can connect so much to your essay because I used to do cheerleading. I know a lot of people say cheerleading isn't a sport but I feel that cheerleading is one of the most dangerous sports there is. I also enjoyed reading the part where you had never thrown some of your skills but faced your fears and got to go to national!
really liked reading your essay. I am a cheerleader too and I believe a lot of the same things that you do. I loved the part about being a flyer, because I am also a flyer and I love it. That feeling you get when you are in the air just makes you feel like you can do anything. I also really like the parts about tumbling and doing new skills. It takes a lot of confidence to try something like that and a lot of people don't realize that. and Congratulations on going to Nationals!
