It is not the end but the beginning of something new. For Johnson, her family and her community they were anxious, happy, and couldn’t just wait for the big day to come. They kept busy preparing for what I would call one of the most importance days of their lives. Almost everyone in the school took part or helped in some way except the graduating class. The importance of graduation is to help you realize that after all the hard work, effort, and dedication there is always a result and that is graduating.
This experience showed me that working together is important and you can learn a lot from others on the team. Being an active member of the cheerleading squad enabled me to see just how much a sport can change a person’s life. I contributed to the team by helping out wherever I was needed.

Oprah brings her heart and soul into everything she is doing. Oprah is always willing to try new things and be creative.
