I have had some big challenges in my past. One of them was starting a sport. Starting basketball was hard because I didn’t know anyone. I didn’t know how to play, and I wouldn’t make any shots.
First, basketball was hard for me because I didn’t know anyone and had no friends. It was hard having no one I knew on my basketball team.
Second, it was hard because I didn’t know how to play. Whenever you don’t know how to play, it is hard because you let your team down whenever the ball is stolen or the shot blocked. In addition, it is difficult because whenever I went up for a shot, I missed and shot an air ball. I used to always let my team down.
In conclusion, it was difficult my first time because I had no friends. I didn’t know how to play, and I always missed. The lesson I learned is to never give up.
