Hi my name is Ava Romano and I am in eighth grade. I have been a student at Unity School for 10 years. I have been a student athlete since fifth grade. The sports I played were volleyball, basketball, soccer, lacrosse, and tennis. My favorite sport is basketball.
Through sports I have learned many virtues which benefit my life today and will in the future. Some of the virtues are teamwork, leadership, dedication, confidence, and perseverance to name a few. One virtue I use each time I step on the court or field is perseverance. Through perseverance I have learned even if I have a bad game I can still learn from it and put it behind me.
Another virtue important to me is sportsmanship. Through sportsmanship I have learned to respect not only my teammates and their talents but other teams’ players and talents as well. Lastly, sports have taught me how to win and lose gracefully. I am glad I played sports at Unity School. It afforded me the opportunity to learn some valuable lessons, which will be helpful as I go into high school. One thing I definitely know is I will be playing sports in high school.
