I find it quite hard to write about myself. Which is strange because you would think it would be easy considering that I know myself better than anybody else in the world. Since I find this topic quite difficult I am just going to answer these three questions: Who are you? What are some sports and activities you enjoy? What are your plans for the future?
Who are you? My name is Taya Rylan Henderson. I was born in Red Deer, Alberta on February 7th, 2001. I lived in Sylvan Lake with my mom for the first few years of my life. We then moved to Edmonton where we lived until we moved to Vermilion over three years ago. I have two younger sisters, Nola who is 5, and Ella who is 2. They are both my half sisters. Nola and I have the same mom, and Ella and I have the same dad. Those are the basics of who I am.
What are some sports and activities you enjoy? I enjoy many different kinds of sports. I do lots of sports outside of school, but I also try to get involved in lots of school sports. For sports outside of school I play hockey, soccer, and I do triathlons. For these triathlons I usually train with Anastasia and her family. For sports inside of school I play volleyball, badminton, and I really enjoy track. This year I think I might try playing basketball. I also really like art. I am taking art classes from Ms.To (my former art teacher) this year and I am really excited for those to start. I also have some part-time jobs in the spring I am a soccer referee, and I work at my mom’s store part-time throughout the year.
What are your plans for the future? In the future I would really like to help people. Doing this would most likely involve working in the medical field. I also think that it would be very neat to travel to different parts of the world and help people who don’t have as many resources as we are fortunate enough to have here. I would also like to stay really involved in sports throughout my whole life. Being active is very important and I really enjoy sports so I find that it will be important to continue that in the future.
This questions made me look deeper into who I am but I still do not know completely who I am yet. I would like to keep figuring it out. I would also like to keep improving and become a better person each and everyday.
