Nice game of badminton!
I was around 4 years old I learned how to write my name. when I first tried I couldn't get all the letters right. It was hard and frustrating since I kept on trying and wasn't able to get it right. With the help of my dad encouraging me and telling me I can do it. I kept on trying and then I was able to write my name.
I was 11 when I went for swimming lessons. It was the day they were going to see if you were ready to move on the next level. I was really scared because I didn't know if i could do it. I didn't want to give up without trying so I went and passed to the next level. This showed me that when I put in work I can learn new skills.
When I was 12 I played a proper game of badminton with my friend. This was one of my first games. I really enjoyed playing that game. I may not be an amazing player but i discovered that this sport is fun for me. I knew I had to continue to look for what I like and discover myself.
