What makes you a great leader for your team? I work hard to do my best to help my team perform at the upper level by practicing hard and achieving personal goals that help my team. I am always there for them and I cheer for all the teams in my gym and this helps me show gym and individual team leadership.
What part of cheerleading do you enjoy the most? I enjoy high flying and my Scorpion at the top of a one man!
Do you consider cheerleading a sport? Why? Cheerleading is a sport because I work out 8 hours a week in the gym, strengthening when at home, stretching when I can and then performing at the top levels. A sport requires hard work and dedication and endurance and that is why my sport is Cheerleading
