Everyday of my life I feel stress of just keeping up with my schoolwork. Then on top of it I participate in two sports along with stating in the spring. Sometimes I find it overwhelming, however Samantha Peszek not only participated in sports, she did gymnastics in the Olympics! Balancing school and fierce, intense practices everyday could not have been easy. Everyone can only dream of being talented enough someday to make it to the Olympics. Samantha, however, proved it took more than talent; it took hard work and focus. I admire her drive to achieve, but in the end she’s just like me, a normal teenage girl.
