DSC community member Faith Dunn made Roosevelt High School History when she scored the first run on the Slow Pitch Softball Team. This month we interviewed Faith to learn more about the softball team and what inclusion means to her.
- What grade are you in? What is your favorite subject?
I’m a sophomore at Roosevelt High School. I like choir because I really like my teacher Dr. Kent. Before covid when we were in school, we sang lots of great songs and had fun performances. After covid, we meet online. I like in-person better but we still sing and have online performances. We have one on March 29 and we had to write music and lyrics. That was hard for me but I still like the class.
- Tell me about your Slow Pitch Softball Team.
It’s fun because I have made friends on the team. I like hitting the ball and I like playing in the outfield. It is a new sport for my high school and I scored the very first run so I made history.
- What made you want to join the team?
After being home for so long, I wanted to see people in person plus play a sport. I play Challenger baseball and softball for Special Olympics so I’m good at it.
- What is your favorite part about playing Softball? My favorite part is seeing my coaches and my friends. I also like catching the ball.
- What does Inclusion mean to you?
Inclusion for me means being able to meet new people and make friends. I love being part of Best Buddies and Unified sports at my school. That’s what inclusion means to me.
- What are some of your favorite DSC Events?
My favorites are the Fashion Show and the Holiday Party. I had fun with all my friends at them. One of my favorite teachers was my escort at the fashion show and my other teachers came to watch and cheer us on. I can’t wait for covid to end so I can go to more events and see my friends.
