On a more personal note, participating in sports expanded my social circle, improved my overall health, and taught me determination and commitment.
Like any other person, I started participating in sports when I was a little kid in kindergarten. Coming from an extremely humid and warm climate, swimming was my ultimate source of happiness and joy. It started off as some baby splashes, until the water became my life. Swimming became a hobby, and more importantly a sport that I participate in on a daily basis.
I have been involved in sports both in school and outside school. In school, I am a member of the school’s swimming team where girls are allowed to take part. Outside school, I am not that active though I visit the swimming pool with my family where we do it for fun, which has helped in perfecting my skills in swimming. This is one sport that I feel that I would like to participate even in competitions. I would like to one day represent my school and even my country in future.
I am lucky enough to say, that I got the privilege to travel the world with my family, and get exposed to several of different cultures. My parents have been going to Gstaad, Switzerland every single winter since the day they got married; almost 34 years ago. My parents wanted my siblings and me to live the experiences they’ve always dreamt of having; so they enrolled us all in private skiing classes. Even if my parents were skilled in skiing, it was better that they hired a professional to train us. For sports are not just about athletics but etiquette and knowing the mountain. It is one thing for a parent to train their children sliding down a hill on the road, and there is more to that. It is the rules of etiquette of getting on and off the ski lift on the mountain, which kids need to know.
