NOV. 30, 2018: This school year I've joined the cheerleading team and the experience is definitely fantastic and interesting. The experience is interesting because the team bonded with the newcomers quickly and I truly liked that. I learned that team bonding is something I needed to work on because I really didn't like working with others until I became a cheerleader. One of the main reasons I wanted to become a cheerleader is because I knew that I have great quality because I am taller than most of the cheerleaders and I am smaller than the others.
I joined the cheerleading squad because of the competitions. I like to battle others to see what we are doing wrong so we can fix that. There are some competitions coming up around February and March and I am very excited for them because the cheerleaders are going to be around each other for a long time so that’s a plus.
In conclusion, I think that team bonding is an important key to being a cheerleader because once you are around different people you can start working with others and that's a good thing in the real world.
