As a kid I participated in:
Swimming, Tennis, Golf
As an adult I participated in:
Volleyball, tennis, coaching
How my activities influenced my occupation and activities in adulthood:
As a recreation major in college I was involved in many sports; tennis, swimming, golf, badminton. I eventually became an elementary school teacher and permanent “team mom” with my kid’s sports teams. Sports were a part of our family’s culture. I play tennis at least 4 times per week and I am 60 years old and have had two knee replacements.
Advice for kids looking to get involved:
Get involved. Don’t wait. Learn good skills, value sportsmanship. Mentor others.
