My Experience In High School

Good Essays

Being in front of 100 people and performing, is like being in a movie when something exciting happens and everything goes in slow motion. The crowd cheering at a snail's pace, hair is frozen in the air, and it is as quiet as a mouse in church. This is how I felt on the gymnastics floor when I was trying out for All American. Me in my black and white uniform vs 60 girls to get a spot on the All American Cheerleading Team. That was the craziest week of my life.
5 Days Earlier... The first day of camp is just like the first day of school; you are super nervous but excited at the same time. My team and I get to go to NCA (National Cheerleading Association) camp!! Every year this team has cheerleading camps all over the US, they teach you new ways of doing things like new preps, new dances, new cheers and new ways of getting the crowd involved. This was the first years that Annandale High School has been able to go to this camp. The whole team was so pumped to learn new things and to bond with each other. This camp takes place at St. Cloud State University a few weeks before school starts so it is still very hot outside. The drive was about 35 minutes, we had to get up and start getting ready at 5:00am and be there at 8:00am. I was so nervous because I have extreme anxiety and doing something like this is terrifying. Going to a place I've never been to before, being in a room with 60 girls I have never meet. My stomach was so twisted it felt like I’d been on a roller coaster
