My name is Katie. I’m a junior at Woodrow Wilson High School. I love gymnastics, and I’m pretty good at it. I like to compete but if I don’t win that’s ok. I get involved in loads of school activities because of the social aspect of things.
People seem to be naturally drawn to me, but I don’t understand why. There’s nothing about me that’s all that special. I tried out for cheerleading on a dare. I didn’t really consider it in the beginning because I wasn’t comfortable with the idea of being in front of a group. But my friends kinda pushed me and I got in. It’s ok because I look at it as a gymnastics competition. When I’m competing, I shut out everything around me and I just concentrate on the routine I’m doing at the time. I’m not even aware that there are people there; I just do my routine. It’s kinda fun actually. Cheerleading is much the same way. I just do the routine.
I love fashion. Sometimes when I am perfectly dressed I feel really good about myself. It gives me a lot of confidence to step outside my box and try something new. If I could change anything about myself it would be my hair. My friends love my hair, but they don’t know what a pain it is.
