Girls who play sports learn 6 and goal-setting skills.Working with coaches,trainers, and teammates to win games and meet goals is great practice for 7 later in life. Being a team player can make it easier to work with others and 8 problems,whether on the field or in the workplace. Sports have hidden health benefits.Some benefits of sports are 9 — like improving physical fitness and 10 a healthy weight. But girls who play sports are also less likely to smoke and have a reduced chance of 11 cancer later in life. Sure,you can get these benefits from any type of exercise. But if you have 12 getting to the gym, there may be more 13 to show up and play if you know your coaches or teammates 14 on you. Playing sports builds self-confidence.Girls 15 in athletics feel better about themselves, both physically and socially. It helps to build 16 when you achieve your goals.

Do you-6-

work towards your goals or do you just hope for the best? The way you 2 yourself says a lot about what‟s happening in your world.If you walk into a room, 3 about what‟s happening, willing to engage, and perceive yourself in a positive light, you 4 your life to opportunities. When you walk into a room with your eyes 5 , nervously smiling, you show lack of confidence, a contrary attitude, and someone to be 6 . If you realize that you‟re not 7 showing up and have a vision of what it would look and feel like when you do, you have the necessary inspiration to 8 the right choices. The choices will help you 9 for this journey known as life. There are many things you can do to 10 the life you desire. When you show up for life, you‟ll find purpose in doing what you want to 11 in life. You‟ll find places and opportunities that can give you the 12 you have dreamed of. You‟ll experience passion for living that you never dreamed possible. When you are 13 engaged in showing up, you‟ll find whatever 14 is that you need. You‟ll be full of 15 and become passionate about what is expected of you each day. There is nothing 16 than the feeling of showing up for your own life. When you do this,you become one who is more confident and who has the ability to make things 17 in your own way. You‟ll walk through the world with the 18 that you have a lot to offer and a great 19 to share it.With the knowledge, you‟ll also correct your wrong ways and move forward instead of 20 back with your talents to succeed.

Years flew by,and soon I was able to participate in the elections, 2 I would win.But the reality struck that I hadn‟t had a chance.I wasn‟t pretty.Girls across the school hardly knew me.I just did not have what it 3 to win a school election.I was 4 . As I cried in my room that evening,I 5 took a deep breath and decided I wouldn‟t stop dreaming.I decided that I would 6 for election again in my final year at school—and I would win. I recognized that my 7 had a lot of things in their favor.What were the 8 that would work in my favor? I had good grades,and I was friendly and helpful.And my biggest 9 was the faith I had.I would not allow my 10 appearance to hold me back from putting my best foot forward.That evening,I 11 my election plans a whole year in advance. I realized that girls would have to get to know me and recognize that I had the ability to 12 them.I loved making friends and I liked being helpful, 13 I decided that perhaps I could use these qualities to work to my advantage.In order to learn how to present a great election 14 ,I also attended a course on effective public speaking. The day after the election,when the principal announced I won the second highest number of votes,the students 15 .That joy on the faces of all my friends showed me that my victory was 16 theirs. Suddenly,I realized that I had 17 much more than I had dreamed of.I had made many new friends and had helped people 18 the way.I had won the 19 and love of my schoolmates and they knew me as somebody who would stand by them.I was able to put a smile on their faces and 20 their days. 1.A.admired B.remembered C.praised D.believed 2.A.praying B.planning C.calculating D.judging 3.A.assessed B.provided C.meant D.took 4.A.concerned B.depressed C.surprised D.confused 5.A.gradually B.immediately C.suddenly D.impatiently 6.A.pay B.stand C.speak D.wait 7.A.competitors B.companions C.enemies D.schoolmates 8.A.cases B.methods C.examples D.points 9.A.problem B.strength C.worry D.dream 10.A.young B.personal C.special D.plain 11.A.began B.discussed C.announced D.cancelled 12.A.recommend B.accompany C.represent D.support 13.A.but B.and C.so D.or 14.A.campaign B.speech C.ceremony D.promise 15.A.nodded B.gathered C.cheered D.cried 16.A.only B.still C.almost D.also 17.A.accomplished B.accumulated C.devoted D.developed 18.A.by B.to C.in D.along 19.A.appointment B.acceptance C.election D.reputation 20.A.enrich B.bless C.brighten D.expand Cloze 15 You Are Going Places One day I came home from school,changed my clothes and got ready for work.I work at a local restaurant- 12 -

I 3 Salome Bey,telling her I was from Essence magazine,and that I wanted to meet her to talk about her career.She 4 and told me to come to her studio next Tuesday.When I hung up,I was scared out of my mind.I 5 I was lying.I was not a writer at all and hadn‟t even written a grocery list. I interviewed Salome Bey the next Tuesday.I sat there 6 ,taking notes and asking questions that all began with,“Can you tell me...”I soon realized that 7 Salome Bey was one thing,but writing a story for a national magazine was just impossible.The 8 was almost unbearable.I struggled for days 9 draft after draft.Finally I put my manuscript(手稿)into a large envelope and dropped it into a mailbox. It didn‟t take long.My manuscript 10 .How stupid of me!I thought.How could I 11 in a world of professional writers?Knowing I couldn‟t 12 the rejection letter,I threw the unopened envelope into a- 14 -

At one point along an open highway,I 5 a crossroads with a traffic light.I was alone on the road by now,but as I 6 the light,it turned red and I braked to a stop.I looked left,right and behind me.Nothing.No cars,no suggestion of headlights,but there I sat,waiting for the light to 7 ,the only human being for at least a mile in any 8 . I started 9 why I refused to run the light.I was not afraid of being 10 ,because there was obviously no policeman around,and there certainly would have been no 11 in going through it. Much later that night,after I 12 a group of my friends in Lewisburg and climbed into bed near midnight,the question of why I had stopped for that light 13 me.I think I stopped because it‟s part of a contract (合同) we all have with each other.It‟s not only the 14 ,but it‟s an arrangement we have,and we trust each other to 15 it:we don‟t go through red lights.Like most of us,I‟m more likely to be 16 from doing something bad by the social convention that 17 it than by any law against it. It‟s amazing that we ever 18 each other to do the right thing,isn‟t it?And we do,too.Trust is our 19 preference. I was so 20 of myself for stopping for the red light that night.- 15 -

Reaching into my pocket as the 4 was approaching,my numb hand searched for the $20 bill to pay my fare.The pocket was 5 !I searched through my bag and then I felt 6 .Unless the money dropped from the sky,I‟d be 7 there. “What‟s the matter?”A short,elderly man stood before me. “Oh,nothing...Well,I 8 my money and now I can‟t pay for the ticket.I‟m going to 9 my math class and the train is leaving.” “Here,use this.” The man held a $20 bill.I looked up, 10 .People just didn‟t do that anymore.Everyone worried about their own 11 ,rarely stopping to think about others,especially teenage strangers. “Thank you,but no,I can‟t.” “ 12 it—go!”The man pushed me 13 the train.I bought a round-trip ticket,and he refused the change I 14 to give him back.I did not know what to say—a million thoughts raced through my mind,yet I stood 15 . For the train ride I was silent.I began to see the world through 16 eyes.That man made a difference with such a simple 17 . A week later I was at the train station again,with an extra $20 18 I saw the man.And there he was. “Excuse me,sir,I believe I owe you this.”I 19 the money into his hand. Failing to refuse,he said,“Just remember to do the same for someone in your shoes someday.”I smiled,content.
