Katherine's Important Thing
By Katherine
Genre: Non-fiction
Category: Student Examples

Firebird champsMy most important thing would have to be this picture of my 2000-2001 hockey team. We used teamwork and it paid off. My hockey team was superior to the other teams in the state tournament, so we got to travel to Anaheim, California, for Regionals. Unfortunately, we placed second. We went on numerous other trips as well.

When we went to Anaheim, we went to an amusement park by the name of Knott's Berry Farm. It was such a stimulating happening that I would like to remember the people I went with. These people should always be cherished in my memory.

That is one of the reasons I chose this particular photograph, so I could remember all the people who I got to know so fully. An additional incentive is because hockey is my most preferred thing to do. The wind rushing on my face when I am skating is an absolute thrill. It clears my mind when I am feeling angry or down.

One final reason is because two of my family members were part of my hockey team; therefore they were included in this photo. My father was the head coach, and my sister was the captain and on the starting line. My family and hockey are two of the most important things in my life. In this picture, I could have two parts of my family and the sport I love together. This photo has both, so I feel I should treasure it forever.
