How am I perceived?

People perceive me as athletic because of the clothing I wear. Compared to other girls who wear jeans or leggings to school everyday. I find sweatpants much more comfortable.

I'm seen as an athlete because of what I post on social media and how I talk and act. The people I hang around with also play sports with is more of a reason why I'm labeled as an athlete.

The effect my label has on me?

  • I have a lot of pressure on me to be an outstanding athlete and perform my best every game.
  • People see me as cocky and lazy, since I'm a basketball player. Other think I don't do my homework and if I do it's lazy or I copied off other friends.
  • My social ranking is higher, which means more people know about everything I do. I need to keep a good reputation.
  • I need to be good at everything we do in gym.
