All the games, performances, and schools its been to. It has added fun to my life and made me happy. It’s not just clothing it is my cheer-leading uniform. My cheer-leading uniform is made out of fabric. I wore it to practice, fashion shows in my house, shows and parades. I connect my uniform to most things that made me happy because it gave me happiness. When my cheer-leading coach gave it to me I had a huge smile on my face. This uniform showed a part of who I am.  When I asked my mum how I acted when I came home with it she said ¨When you came home with that thing you were at your happiest. Jumped around the whole dang living room.¨ I now see how much my uniform meant to me and how my mom noticed how it meant the world to me. I also asked my mom, how she felt about the uniform. She responded with ¨The minute I saw it in my head I thought, nope its to short. I told you to get my sewing materials and you started whining and said you think every thing is short. So I said never mind.¨ After those questions I knew that cheer-leading was an important part of my life and it was my light in a dark tunnel.
