Soccer Is My Substance
by: Caitlynn (Aliamanu), age 13
My positive substance is playing soccer. I love playing soccer for multiple reasons. One reason is because I get to meet new people that like doing what I like to do. Even if I’ve been on the same team for four years I still get to meet new people. I always get excited when I go to practice or to a game because kicking the ball gives me a certain kind of feeling that I enjoy. Even if we don’t win a game I still enjoy playing soccer because the parents on the sideline cheers us on and gives us positive encouragement.
