Auburn University Women's Gymnastics Team
I am a gymnast on the Auburn University's women's gymnastics team. I began in 2011 and will end my gymnastics career in 2015. In my time on the women's gymnastics team I have learned many things. I have learned teamwork, sportsmanship, dedication and time management. I have participated in elementary school visits with my teammates where I gave presentations to young students focusing on the benefits of continuing their education, how to build self-confidence and the importance of being a good student. I spoke to children, ages 7-12, about the importance of balancing school and sports. I also was a volunteer coach at gymnastics summer camps for two years. At the camps I coached and motivated young adults and children in gymnastics. I taught basic gymnastics skills and coached them to improve upon upper level skills.
