What Sports Mean to Me

Categories: EducationMeanSports

A personal view of sports, athletes and stereotypes.

What Sports Mean to Me Being a cheerleader in the summer of my sophomore year gave me a new perspective about people and the stereotypes we put on them. Before I started cheering, I always categorized athletes who lived only for sports as being “single- minded” and I valued more highly people with a more diverse of interests. After cheering for two months and discovered that I was not very good at it, I realized that sometimes it is necessary to focus intensely on learning a new skill to excel.

As a result of this experience I have learned to respect my peer’s that stand out in cheering as well as in other sports and not necessarily in the classroom. I no longer am committed in cheering but this experience helped me to change certain values and to look deeper into people before I judge.
