“We all have dreams. In order to make dreams come into reality, it takes an awful lot of determination, dedication, self-discipline and effort.”—Jesse OwensImage result for jesse owens quotes

Jesse Owens is best remembered by sports aficionados as the man who upset Adolf Hitler’s Aryan Nation apple cart by not only winning four track and field gold medals (the first individual to do so), but setting or tying world or Olympic records in the process. Owens’ Herculean feat occurred during the 1936 Berlin Olympics — Hitler’s supposed showcase for his “Aryan racial superiority.” By winning his four events, Owens, at the age of 21, tied the world 100-meter dash record at 10.3 seconds, set Olympic records for the 200-meter dash (20.7 seconds) and the broad jump* (26′ 5 1/4″), and ran the first leg for the Olympic and world record-setting 400 meter relay team (39.8 seconds).

Hey Guys! While high school and life can be stressful at times, sometimes we forget how important it is to take some time to relax. I can think of any better way to do that than my favorite pastime: yoga. For my capstone, I will be hosting a Yoga class to bring attention to mental health and how important it is to take care of ourselves. The class will be on February 21st at 3:30 in the CPAC. Ms. Hoffman has graciously let me take over one of her after school Thursday classes, and best of all, Mr. Monty Coggins will be leading!

While they are not required, I am also collecting donations for an organization called CVAN. CVAN is a shelter for abused women and their children here in Concord. They offer financial care and mental health programs to support women who have gone through traumatic events. If you would like to donate – there will be a box at the class. If you can’t make the class but would still like to help out, please reach out to me at school or via email with any donations you would like to make.- Kristen Sharma
