What it is Like to be a Cheerleader


Brenda Victorio, Contributor

Do you like to meet new people? Do you like to try new things? Perfect! Cheerleading is the way to go. Cheerleading has taught me a lot over the past year. I met a lot of new people, I learned a lot of new things, and most importantly, it got me out of my comfort zone. I felt like a new person in a good way. I felt very accomplished and blessed. 

Being a Cheerleader is actually very very fun. Since the first day, I knew this was for me. I was such a shy girl and I thought I would never be able to do anything in life, but Cheerleading proved me wrong. It has changed me for the better. My favorite part about it is meeting new people and making new friends. The girls and boys on the team made me feel welcomed and happy. 

Cheer is not what everyone thinks it is. It’s about being positive, friendly, and working together to become better. It’s not about fighting, arguing, and making people feel down. We all work as a group so we can all be successful and happy. You create a lot of new bonds and new beginnings that will be better for the future of yours.
