I’m Proud Of My Brother For Making the Junior Olympics!!!

photoMy little brother is following in my footsteps. Well, I can’t really call him little anymore hee hee. Anyway, RJ’s on a track team that was able to qualify for the Junior Olympics held in Michigan. I’m so proud of him! The feature will be in The Journal newspaper soon, so I can’t wait to read it.

Hopefully, the team can raise enough donations to be able to travel there. It would suck to qualify, then not be able to attend. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we can get these young men to Detroit. It’s always cool to see accomplishments in the local paper, especially by young people (our future).

RJ’s the farthest on the left, and my cousin Marquel is standing beside him. It’s funny because me and RJ are 13 years apart, and we have nothing in common. I’m a big ole introvert and a self-proclaimed geek. He’s a charming, popular athlete.

Wishing him and the rest of the team best of luck!

As a writer, I’m definitely observing the process of raising money for a particular goal. You never know when a story idea or a sub-plot can come in handy. So far, they’ve been trying to find sponsors, will have a feature in the paper (hopefully, some locals will want to help), and had a car wash (hopefully more events are planned). Guys, it may be time to have an auction for your time–if all the teen TV shows can do it, then why can’t it happen in real life hee hee.

Keep smiling,

Yawatta Hosby
