Gymnast also enjoys literary acrobatics
Although she quit for two years to take care of her mom when she was sick, she has been practicing for four years now. "Gymnastics requires an unheard of amount of dedication and time commitment. It is hard to sacrifice things in order to make meets or practice, but we do it because we love to do it," she said. Christa said by immersing herself in the sport, she's grown more responsible and developed strong leadership skills.
NAME: Christa LeJune
SCHOOL: Westchester Academy for International Studies, KISD
EXTRACURRICULARS: "I am a member of the Anime Club at WAIS; I love to read and watch anime, then discuss my comments with the club. I am a gymnast at Stars Gymnastics, currently training Level Eight. I spend most of my time at the gym working on my skills and perfecting my technique. I have sacrificed a lot of normal teenage things for gymnastics."
FAVORITE CLASS: "My favorite subject is English. I adore reading different kinds of literature."
FAVORITE MUSICAL GENRE: "I like listening to heavy metal and scream. Paramore is my favorite band. I have seen them three times in concert."
FAVORITE BOOK: "To Kill a Mockingbird" by Harper Lee. "The plot is timeless and can be relatable to readers no matter the generation."
AMBITION: "As a sophomore, it is hard to say exactly what I want to do. I am really passionate about literature, so maybe something in the English field. As far as college, I have been looking at Alabama State. However, I plan on keeping all options open."
