Do It Again
Being encouraged by her mother, Mallory Watson continued to push through her competitions even when things got hard or stressful. She has struggled with balancing all of her activities- cross country, track, cheer, and yearbook.
Watson has questioned whether or not to drop her other sports. In the end, she realized that it was not as bad as it seemed. Watson said she could be a leader in unique situations like the time when she stepped up her junior year to be captain of the cross-country team. She had shown leadership when no one else would.
She knew when to step up and how to be the person who was remembered. She has continued to show leadership qualities throughout her time involved in these activities. “Any kind of environment, I can put myself in that leadership position,” Watson said. She has recognized who she is and that she was able to take on more than one task.
Watson said “I’m able to help. No one is afraid to come and ask me for stuff”. She related to her fellow classmates, “I don’t know what I’m doing either”.
She was not afraid to admit that she did not know everything about what was going on. Watson knew from an early age that she was bound to be a person who leads an active lifestyle. Her parents encouraged and pushed her to be active.
Watson balanced school, work, and after school activities. She realized that she could do anything she wanted. She could do it again.
