Professional Presentation

Go, fight, win. I believe this chant to be most the memorable and closely associated with cheerleading. When I think of some of my fondest moments from high school, my time spent cheerleading is usually in the forefront of my memories. When the opportunity came to speak to a group of high school cheerleaders I was more than excited. I did not want to speak to just the sport itself but more so of my personal experience navigating being a high school athlete and how the same principles that were imperative then are still relevant now.

At a time when young minds are so very impressionable it is important for them to know that success is attainable and the path to success is not perfect. I provided a relatable talk that connected my past with their present. Life lessons that took many of us years to learn can be imparted to our young leaders in an effort to shape a better future for them.

I am not an expert on cheerleading or life but this talk opened the door for further discussions and thoughts about respect, discipline, and anti-bullying. I hope for my brief presentation to lead to mentorships and other avenues to encourage young women.

  1. Caitlin,

    I am pleased to view your professional presentation! I think your idea of helping athletes learning how to navigate that end of high school was great. You gave them some great tips to navigate the troubles of or potential troubles of high school and into the work force and the college life. I like that you talked about bullying and discipline. These are so important for our youth of our world. Well done.
