When you think about something that keeps you alive what you end up with? Passion. Passion is power, it’s something it burns inside you, it makes you feel alive, full of energy and spirit. It’s part of your soul and sometimes it’s difficult to find it inside you other times you just know since the first moment. We never think about that but each day of our life are spent by looking for what really makes us feel complete, extremely well and what is a good incentive to spread out all the resources we keep inside. Passion tells all about you and through it other people can read your self and discover your most beautiful parts. So guys what are you waiting for? Tell me about yours!!

My Passion is wrestling. I like to beat up on kids on the mat. I’ve started when I was in 8th grade and when I do it I feel healthy and unstoppable. This sport is everything to me.

“Passion is energy. Feel the power that comes from focusing on what excites you”

Lezley Campos and Shawnthie Del Torro

Lezley: “We don’t have a passion in common we just wanna be there for each other”

Shawnthie: “For life or Death!”

Lezley: “We want to be there for each other whenever we are doing a bad or good thing! Like when Shawnthae is becoming a professional wrestler I’m gonna be with her to support her!”

Shawnthie: “When you’ll change school, I’m gonna be there every single steps of the way!!

Lezley: “We also encourage always each other!! For example I encourage her to be more social and kinder!”

Shawnthie: “I encourage her to do sports!”

In a relationship people learn from each other, they make the other person change in some ways and, if the relationship is good then they will change in a positive way. Sometimes we find in each other an incentive as you’ve told me and other times we find in the other person the best way to be ourselves. We help each other to spread in the outside our best qualities and this is the basement of a passion. Have you then changed your selves for each other?

Lezley: “We changed each other in a way to meet people more and not to get mad with each other.”

Shawntei:” Everyone is the same in this school but anyone is like you Lezley”

“If you feel like there’s something out there that you’re supposed to be doing, if you have a passion for it, then stop wishing and just do it.”

“I think playing volleyball it’s a very supportive environment and it’s very positive and very helpful, like having everyone around, being in a group, understanding each other in only that way. When I play I feel stressed, focused on a lot of things, it’s pretty cool though because like you know that it’s just you and your team on the court. I started playing when I was in junior high. I really recommend playing it because it’s pretty fun!!”

“Passion is the oxygen of the soul.”

“I think a passion of mine would just be tennis, I love playing it and coaching it to other. I hope to play it when I’m in college.”

“I have to face life with a newly found passion. I must rediscover the irresistible will to learn, to live and to love.”

“What I like about dancing is that it shows emotion, it’s an expression. At times I can be a shy, nervous person. Yes a shy girl, some will be shocked. It’s due to my anxiety but dancing allows me to let me relieve myself from stress. I started dancing when I was around 5 years-old but there’s a big gap for when I was 5 until I was 14. From 6-8 I would dance a few times at parties but I was mostly be playing around with my peers. 8-13 I absolutely HATED dancing to Spanish music. I’d only dance to English music. If I went to a Mexican party you would never seen out on the dance floor, I didn’t have any rhythm. I’d be as stiff as a stick if I were to dance. When I was 14 I started to get into dancing to Spanish music. The only reason why I had to learn was because I needed to practice for my quinceanera. Now I’m 15, in one year I grew a passion for dancing. If you see me around school I’m either zoned out dreaming or randomly dancing. My dancing partner is my friend Adolfo. You’ll find us always dancing together!! Now my favorite type of music to dance to is Spanish music. How ironic right? I think it’s because of how much passion you could put in it. . There can be a basis salsa song. You can either do the steps with no emotion or do steps and show a sensual emotion to add some “spice” to the dance. Of course I would add sensual emotion to it. You can’t just add a random emotion to a dance. So if y’all are in need of a dance partner just know that I’m available!!”

“There is no passion to be found playing small—in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”

“I really love hiking because it feels great! At the end of an hike you feel like you have found something. I generally go hiking with my friends or sometimes by my self which is a long better because you can spend more time on your own with your thoughts. ”

“The passions are like the winds, which are necessary to give movement to everything, although they often cause hurricanes.”

“Tennis is a fundamental part of my life now. When I’m playing or practicing everything kind of washes away and in that moment I’m just focused on the ball and being on the court. I’ll push my self in tennis and I try to recognize what areas I need to work on that day. Sometimes it’s frustrating because I’ll be going over a motion over and over and every time I don’t get the result I want I’m constantly tweaking and changing my form to see what works best. For me, my favorite part of tennis is the competition. If nobody is pushing you hard then you aren’t getting better. Practicing with the girls on the team and forcing each other to play hard and smarter is always tough but fun. We all have different strengths that help us get each other better. Overall, I really enjoy the team we have assembled and the cohesiveness because we always encourage each other during game, practice and on our off days.”

“If you have passion for what you do, a little madness is inevitable, probably necessary.”

-Lady Gaga

Sophia Trejo

“My passion is music and I like lots of instruments like the clarinet, the piano, the trumpet. I enjoy the orchestra of the school and I enjoy a lot learning new music. When I play music it makes me feel relaxed and happy. I’ve been playing the guitar since 2nd period and I was in band in 4th grade.”

“Passion in everything. I want the slightest things hopelessly, like the biggest ones. I never have respite.”

-Gabriele D’Annunzio
