Hi, I am Keara! It is my pleasure to share with you the best sport that my family and I have ever been in: KARATE.
I started it at the age of four. My first competition was when I was an Orange Belt. I did Forms and Weapons. My weapon was the Nunchuk. I won all two 1st Place.
I competed in World Championships with my family at Little Rock, Arkansas, and got a trophy as the Best Tiny Tiger Kicker.
We’ve been to a lot of places around California as well as many other states to compete such as Sacramento, Elk Grove, Rocklin, Vallejo, Modesto, Sta. Rosa, Turlock, Ventura, Del Mar, Ontario, Temecula, San Diego, Las Vegas, Oregon and Arkansas.
Because of this sport, I got a chance to meet and greet with the celebrities who were from ATA (American Taekwondo Association) like Noah Ringer; the lead star of the Last Airbender movie and Mike Chat; The Blue Power Ranger.
The best part of this journey was that we got to visit different theme parks and landmarks. Such as Disney World, FL, Universal Studios, CA, Legoland, CA, Statue of Liberty, NY, Graceland, TN, Largest Cross, TX, Liberty Bell, PA, White House, Washington, DC, Grand Canyon, AR.
As for this sport, when I grew up, I want to be an ATA World Champion like my dad.
Ooops! One more thing that I am proud to brag to you about is my inspiration for drawing: my big brother, Klaude. He won 1st place in the “Judge a Book by it’s Cover” contest. In over 1,500 entries all over the Sacramento public libraries. He also illustrated the poster image of Gulliver in Gulliver’s Travels which was shown last Feb. 28-Mar. 1, 2014.
