Staying fit and positive through Tennis
by Amanda (Moanalua), age 15
My positive substance is tennis because it keeps me in shape. It also keeps me really busy and active, its a good stress reliever after a long week of school. Tennis promotes teamwork and instills good values. For example, the quality of never giving up and persevering. Tennis is a good positive substance because it has positive effects on me, tennis is a good way for me to stay in shape without being a super competitive activity. Tennis is also an amazing sport for socializing. There is hardly any hard feelings after a match. Tennis is truly a positive substance for me.
