My high school is the only high school in the world where it is cooler to be in the spring musical than to be a cheerleader. But I wanted to do it anyways.
At the end of my freshman year of high school, I decided I was going to join the "Spirit Squad." Up to that point I had been competitively figure skating for ten years, and I wanted to have a more "typical" high school experience. I felt isolated. I needed to be a part of something.
