My Experience with Cheerleading
By Stella Kennedy
Hi, I'm Stella, an 11 year old competitive cheerleader. I'm going to talk about what it is like to be a cheerleader and about the time I met a famous cheerleader. “1,2,3,4”, counted my coaches for the stunts for the elite stunt. The elite stunt is our main stunt. Some of the help I have had for stunting is S.W.A.T team private lessons. This helps me get better at more difficult stunting . So if a flyer gets hurt I could fill in for them on a team of older cheerleaders, like Y3 Or J3.I also do private lessons with one of my team coaches and one of the tumbling coaches. I'm working on a skill called standing tucks. When my friend Maddy Brum was in Massachuchets I did stretching lessons with her. She is on the second season of a show called Cheer. She is a college level cheerleader. She cheers for Navarro Junior College in Texas. She has won many national and world titles. WIth Maddy Brum I learned how to do many new things like a kick needle and a front stretch tic-toc. With Maddy Brum she ran a flyer for a stretch private lesson which is really good for me for stretching.. Maddy Brum also works for Action Spirit which is a cheer camp . Action helps cheer gyms make routines. One of the Action Spirit people work at our cheer gym.

Platform heels, the ultimate ankle breaker! They may seem intimidating, however when you really get used to them they aren't so bad to wear. There are a wide variety like platform boots, platform heels, platform sneakers and even platform crocs. Right now I myself own 10 pairs including 2 pairs of Miley Cyrus x Converse sneakers. And then you have the famous brands like Dr. Martens and Demonia. People started wearing platforms in the 1930's. The first modern platform was made by Moshe Kimel for actress Marlene Dietrich. You can wear platforms with almost anything but my recommendation is wearing them with long baggy pants or a cute pleated skirt. You can find cheap cute platforms on Amazon. I’d say buying them off of Amazon is a lot better than buying off of any other website because you’ll be able to find them for cheaper and they will arrive earlier. Platforms are for everyone there will always be something for everyone with colors, heights, styles. That’s all I have for this week. Please be sure to drink water and enjoy yourself and wear whatever you feel comfortable in.
Their orange skin helps them blend in. They can climb trees to hide and pounce on prey! They are not the fiercest cat, but they are the fastest! When it comes to catching prey, they also attend to sneak up on it slowly so it doesn't hear the cheetah coming. Cheetahs mostly sleep in shady areas such as trees, bushes and a lot of other places. cheetahs thin fur helps them stay cool.
