Athlete of the Month: Anna Krieger

An Enriching Activity in My Life
By: Anna Krieger

 Being involved in Special Olympics sports makes me a better person. I am a member of both the soccer and basketball Special Olympics sports teams. Special Olympics have taught me to work with a team.

At first I was afraid to try something new, I had to learn how to interact with my peers. Special Olympics helps me to improve my listening and following directions skills. I also get the chance to become a positive leader for my teammates. It is important for me to show good sportsmanship and work hard. Special Olympics has become something very important in my life, I am glad that I got involved.

NHS is also a team so the skills I am learning through Special Olympics are transferable to what I may be doing while participating in NHS. I've learned that it is important for people to work together. Special Olympics has taught me to be a good listener, something that I will also need to be a good NHS member.

I am excited with the possibility of becoming involved in NHS. By getting involved, it makes my time at high school fun. I enjoy trying new things and am willing to work hard to be a good representative for my school. Even though I am a special needs student, I understand the importance of working hard, doing my very best. By doing this it helps me to grow and mature and become the very best student and learner I can possibly be.
