Read an Excerpt of an Example Script for Portfolio Task 1

Part of the Body

I have to work hard to build the different basketball skills that I have today. This hard work is important to me because it shows some characteristics that form the core of my identity. For example, I am dedicated to my passion. I will spend a lot of time practicing.

Another point is about how I approach challenges. I will not be afraid of something difficult. I try to work through any difficulties in my life, especially by turning to my friends and family when I need help.

This brings me to my third point about teamwork. Basketball has taught me to be a team player and understand the value of collaboration. I believe that working together can make us more successful. This connects to my cultural background and role as a Chinese citizen. There is a strong belief in the power of the group. We value helping each other.

Teamwork from basketball influences many other parts of my life as well. For instance, when I am in the classroom, I will try to include all my classmates in the discussion.

In other words, basketball is not only a sport I enjoy playing in my free time. It is a way of life that not only helps me work hard and develop my skills but also reminds me of the support that people around me can bring to a team.
