  • Growing Up-Personal Narrative

    was going into sixth grade. Since then we would hang out every day in my front yard. Ashley introduced me to cheerleading, when she mentioned cheerleading I had never heard of it before, and I did not know what she was talking about. She showed me everything she knew and we would practice every time we hung out. I can remember her teaching me dances, cheers, chants, jumps, and how to tumble. Ashley had been cheering since she was seven years old. She cheered on Terrytown’s recreational team until she got to Belle Chasse Middle School, which we were just starting.

  • Cheerleading Is Not A Sport Essay
