Hello, my name is Isabel Lin and I’m a senior in high school. I am here to show the world my life experience so far. Here is a quick synopsis of my background:
- Starting from a young age, I devoted my life to gymnastics.
- To reach my full potential, I decided to enter my gym’s homeschool program from 5th grade all the way to 10th grade. I was quite successful at the peak of my career and even qualified and competed in J.O. Nationals. I was at my all time high.
- Soon, that would all change starting my freshman year of high school. I received my first major injury—torn hip abductor–and subsequently two other major injuries which caused me to lose two seasons of my gymnastics career. As a result of these injuries, my mental and physical health took a hit and I decided to stop in the fall of 2020.
Now you may wonder, why did she show me her background information? Well I’m here to show you what I noticed in these different circumstances.
Leaving the competitive homeschool program and transitioning back into a public high school allowed me to see a completely new perspective. I’ve noticed things that people otherwise may not have noticed and I would like to share these with you. I hope you continue this journey with me!
