Although she originally did cheer, she now plays soccer, basketball, and track. Her favorite sport to play is basketball. “That’s where I met almost everyone, and they have good coaches.” 

     Sasha explains her love of sports by saying, “It helps me with my mental health, and I can focus on other things instead of being on my phone all of the time.” She then said, “They make me a better person since I learn to have good sportsmanship and react to different situations differently.” Sports help her as a student in many ways, “In order to play a sport representing the school, I have to keep my grades up.”
