- Always the Cheerleader (266 KB)
When I was a young girl like many others I would go to the football games to sit and watch the cheerleaders. I dreamed I was going to be one some day. Much to the dismay of my parents and friends I would practice cheers, flips and jumps every day. I got the nerve to try out for my Junior year and I won. I won again my Senior year and then went on to be a cheerleader at Wharton County Junior College. Dreams really can come true.
