“You are the only person on earth who can use your ability.” – Zig Ziegler
This is one of my favourite quote because it shows that you should be the one in control of yourself and maximize the extent of your own abilities. However much your friends, siblings, coaches, or anyone can be influential, you remain the only person that is able to make the choice. People who try to downgrade you are usually insecure about themselves, scared that you’ll beat them, or maybe they’re just having a bad day. But no matter the situation, you remain the person controlling your life, it is YOUR choice to let them hold power over you, or shake them off and be yourself.
The YouTube video I chose
I found this video extraordinarily inspirational because it shows that it doesn’t matter if you’ve been enemies for three hours, in the end you support each other through the result. Bianca Andreeescu has had lots of injuries in the past and is also a big fan of Serena Williams. when Serena Williams experienced a back injury at the Rogers Cup, she immediately had to drop out giving Bianca the win. Bianca comforts Serena by telling her about her own past injuries and the hardships that came with it. In this, it’s shown that it’s important that people band together and help each other out and aim for future peace. Another reason why I liked this video is that being in a sport can allow you to be a part of a bigger community. In conclusion, I believe that being a good sport/person can reward you with something big.
A photo that has impacted my life
Back in grade 8, my science teacher brought climate change into the classes attention. While I was doing research, a photo came across and it has impacted my life ever since. It has inspired me to use metal straws, reusable water bottles, etc. I even did a project on it and shared it with the class. Not only did it inspired me to save the ocean myself, but I encouraged my friends and class to join the cause by giving them metal straws and teaching them about the ocean pollution and how we need to stop using plastic and killing the marine life.
My favourite website
As I was doing research for a project. I came across this website and it amazed me. This website sells environmental-friendly items for a reasonable amount of price. I love buying things from this website because you don’t have to get up and go to a store to buy the item you need ,and at the same time, you won’t be harming the environment.
