    Maria Sharapova Essay

    • 2399 Words
    • 10 Pages

    Be it through television, radio, or toys, we are a product of our childhood. The things we experience as children daily have an enormous, impressionable impact on our lives. For me, childhood wasn’t a typical cookie-cutter situation. For me, the character that stuck with me the most during my childhood wasn’t a toy or television character; it was a tennis player by the name of Maria Sharapova. To understand my––for lack of a better word––obsession, let’s set the scene. It’s been approximately a year since my mother and I moved to the United States. It’s the first week of school and I still have no idea what I’m doing. With my flawed English and lunchbox in hand, I make my way back home from the bus stop after a tough day of first grade math. I walk into my parents’ apartment to the biggest shock of my young childhood––my dad, sitting on the couch, watching television. The television, may I clarify, had essentially become mine. Day after day, my diminutive, worriless self would camp out in front of the television watching endless reruns of the Loony Tunes. Due to my stepfather’s insistence on watching tennis, I was forced to sit down and watch the 2006 US Open instead. At first, my sentiment was one of general annoyance––I wanted to eat my cereal and watch Bugs Bunny. However, as I stayed and watched––admittedly to protest the patriarchy––I became engrossed. As the tournament progressed and Sharapova advanced, my interest grew in proportion to the amount of ranking points she…

    Monica Lewinsky is someone that I have only heard about. I didn’t even know who she was, or what she did, but I saw a lot of “memes” mocking her on the internet. I was born in 1999, so I wasn’t even alive at the time of her scandal with Bill Clinton. And my parents didn 't see a need to tell me about her scandal, as it was not going to affect me in any way. There was no reason for me to know. I wasn’t particularly interested in her story either. However, watching her TED talk clarified a lot of…
