Life. Something to keep a real life; something I associate with in many ways and something that can be improved every single day, every hour, every week.

Name:
Musalina Dzhalil

Age:
15

City:
Yakoruda

To me sport is:
Sport is a big part of my life, he teached me and still teaches me so many things - makes my life a lot better. Sport teaches endurance, discipline and patience, and these are some of the basic qualities that a person has to possess to leave a lasting trace behind them in such a short life. For example, sport shows me that I should not give up if I can't do anything. I built myself as a stronger person thanks to the sport, because it shows who has the desire for success, the courage to fight life and perseverance to continue boldly forward, no matter how many times a person falls never loosing hope and strength to stay on the surface.

I chose to apply for an young sports development ambassadors because:
I want to show that people who live in small towns and villages are very ambitious and want to do sports. They are looking for many ways and although they do not have large sports halls or other facilities, they always find a way to make sport part of their lives. They organize themselves and do different activities themselves, and they also have the potential to be great athletes to win medals or cups. I have applied because I want to show people that you don't need much, only desire to do sports, the place is not that important. People are doing miracles! Yet, to maintain this desire in people, there is a need for at least one person to show the true side of the sport and to motivate everyone, because it is very difficult to be alone, and when we know that there are still thousands of people on the world like us keeps the desire even stronger. I am struggling for more and more people to realize the importance of physical activity. People need to understand that sport is a lot better than sitting in front of the TV. The sport frees us from the tension that accumulates in us during the day by the negative energy and makes us some more positive and energetic people who can give more than themselves to the world.

For this reason, I am honored to be part of this project.
