With her big smile and goofy, outgoing personality junior Kamryn Thomas lets her energetic-competitive spirit be known.

“I met Kamryn through cheerleading; we became friends due to her free-spirit personality and love for cheerleading,” sophomore Kassidi Reid said.

Thomas’ five foot two-inch stature doesn’t give justice for her bold personality and affection for cheerleading. After deciding that gymnastics was not for her, her mother pushed her to try something new; cheerleading. Thomas has now been competing for 11 years and wouldn’t change the thrill of competing for anything in the world.

“I used to come home crying from gymnastics practice, I hated it. But thankfully my mom urged me to try something new and I couldn’t be more grateful,” Thomas said.

However, Thomas’ decision to start cheerleading  plays into her self identity as it was one of her spontaneous choices. The pay-off for her impulsive decision at age five is her spot on the varsity cheerleading squad. Seeing the outcome of the hard work, time and effort that’s put into their practices when they’re competing is what’s made her love cheerleading.

“I have a strong passion for cheerleading, it’s formed me into the person I am today. ” Thomas said.
