Sportable Athlete Ambassador Blog

February 14, 2014

Have you ever thought about being an athlete ambassador? The first time I was asked to speak in front of an audience was for the 9th graders at my school (Hermitage High School).  It was pretty nerve-racking.  I never have been a good public speaker, but when I got out there and started speaking, I thought to myself “This isn’t too bad.”  You’re letting the community realize that even though you have a disability, it doesn’t stop you from doing sports.

I would strongly encourage anyone to become an athlete ambassador and be able to spread the word about all the things we are able to do even if we have a disability!
