Briannah: Hi, my name is Briannah. I’m 16 and I love gymnastics.
Briannah: I look forward to going to gymnastics because its ah, a gateway to just escape school stresses and you can be yourself and try what you feel comfortable with. You’re not pressured into doing anything. My favourite apparatuses include vault and floor. I just like learning, you know, new tricks and flips, and you’re not even realising that you’re actually exercising because it’s just fun. You do fall a lot, and even though your friends and the coaches are laughing, they’re laughing with you not at you, and they help, you know support you. Which then gives you the motivation to try harder to actually get it. The mindset I use in gymnastics, like mistakes are proof that you’re trying, um I try to put into school. It gets really stressful because of VCE but I just keep trying to get the best I can do, and you know if it’s the best I can do I’m really happy.
