Public Communication// Paralympic
My cheerleading group and I had the opportunity to perform for a Paralympic event, hosted at Ueno Park last spring. Our team is very well-known in the district of Minato in Tokyo, thus, we are usually on Minato TV or on NHK. The Paralympic event was also lived on T.V while I got the opportunity to do a speech after a little performance, full of smiles, (chant) for the Paralympic athletes.
Reflecting on my speech right now, I think I was able to spread the love in my passion and give strong reasons behind why I like cheerleading because I thought this place( the stage and the reason we did the performance) was a best-fit. I started cheerleading because I thought it was just my personality: cheerful, energetic, physical and so on. But as I keep on cheerleading in other areas of the country or even for sports. I saw the difference between competitive and just being a chant for a team. Currently, I like both because it gives different energy and emotions to the performance. My cheerleading was always giving natural smiles to everyone and wishing the audience for motivation in challenges or an action they are willing to take. Therefore, doing a speech at the Paralympic event was the best opportunity for me to express my way of cheerleading. Also, I was allowed to speak in English in some parts, thus, I thought I made a group of unity at the event since the Olympics is international.
