When Seymour told Franny and Zooey to do it for the fat lady, they both pictured the most grotesque, disgustingly obese woman then could think of. This way, no matter what they were doing, if they could do it for someone that disgusting, they could for anyone. Seymour wanted both Franny and Zooey to always do their best, and he pushed his beliefs onto them so that they would do so. Inadvertently, Seymour somewhat ruined the Glass children. Franny flourished while she was young, so she always expected the best out of everything.
Even though Corie seems to be perfect on the outside, on the inside she is really struggling to keep it together and find her path. During the movie Gina (Corie’s best friend) has a breakdown and yells at Corie for “hiding who she really is”, taking drugs and trying to be so perfect. This helps Corie because it made everyone else in the store aware so they could help her before college. Also after her breakdown Deb takes care of Corie. She dipped her head in water to calm her
Eventually he listens to his players and it works out in the end. Jess is the captain of the team and she loves to win. She is also the setter and she is very good. Her parents are very involved in what she does but her dad thinks she should be girlier. Crash is one of the best goalies in the district who decides to quit soccer to play volleyball.
In one scene, the director has the students showing a bulletin board and it shows all the stars of the school which are only basketball players, this shows that the school is really only proud of its athletes and not much else. Scott Hamilton Kennedy also uses these interviews to break down the stereotypes. The interviews show us that these kids are real people not the stereotypical Compton gang member or riot starter. In one scene Ebony who plays the stage director has an interview and explains that she is still a virgin and says "people don't believe me when I say that". This shows that stereotypes have taken over and people think that all the girls in Compton lose their virginity at a very young age.
Through the lessons of Character Counts, we learn that our character does in fact count.

I think this incident could have been avoided if the coach or athletic trainer would have not allowed her to keep performing. Is one game worth sitting out eight weeks for? Especially playing in a high league division, I can’t blame her though for pushing through the pain and being dedicated because when you are an athlete that is all that is drilled through your head. From experience I was out from the rest of my basketball season half way through. I just hate to see other athletes go through that.
Helen replied saying, “No” and adding on that she sings instead with a touch of prideness in her voice. Immediately Kath got and jealous and said there are no singing clubs in this school followed by saying, “guess you’re out of luck”. In this topic, Kath’s arrogance once again is illustrated as she embarrasses Helen. Kath’s arrogance goes hand in hand with her selfishness throughout the story. Secondly, Kath has a selfish characteristic where she tends to change things so that things seem more suitable for her.
Volleyball has taught me multiple things; leadership, dedication, and a positive mental attitude. Becoming captain of the team taught me that the underclassmen were watching and learning from my mistakes and experiences, it taught me to lead by example. I never knew how dedicated the captains before me were until I was in their shoes. It taught me that dedication takes weeks or months, you cannot just say it and meet the goals you made for yourself. Volleyball is a mental game, I have to keep a positive mental attitude in order to keep myself in the game.
The Importance of Vision and Goal Setting in Leadership The Importance of Vision and Goal Setting in Leadership Vision and goal setting are two of the most important factors in leadership. It is very important for each and every organization to have a vision of the future. Clark (2004) states, “Good organizations convey a strong vision of where they will be in the future. As a leader, you have to get your people to trust you and be sold on your vision” (p.1.). It is very important for every leader to gain trust from their employees.
Becoming a Professional Basketball Player As a child, I loved to imitate NBA greats like Julius Erving, Larry Bird, Magic Johnson, and David Thompson. Growing up in town that was rich with basketball tradition, I knew that I wanted to make it to the NBA and become a star. Not knowing if I had what it takes to make it to that level, I began my quest at an early age. Becoming a professional basketball player is extremely difficult for some, but for others it just seems to fall in their laps (eHow). My first experience playing organized basketball began when I was in the fifth grade on an after school program in the old armory.
