I have a few First place ribbons for the volleyball team. Also have a few First place trophies from my piano schools concerts. 7 gold trophies to be exact. Of the 7 concerts, I was threatened to be disqualified 5 times lol, & 5 times I laughed at my school principal for the threats after I got the gold. Also just got a silver medal for my Physics bridge-building competition...

Plenty, but in all honesty, I'd rather have not won anything. Sometimes it's better just to know your own talents and use them the way you want... set your own expectations for yourself. Winning something and "being on top" just leads you down the path of trying to live up to other people's expectations and judging yourself by what others think instead of yourself.

Yes, one year I took home 15 of them and a plaque. I was teased for the rest of middle school.

Musical/ Singing Award and Artistic Award. Haha, I can't forget, the Big Reader award for reading over 30 books within a month (yeah, still have that ribbon). Oh yeah, the recorder award.

Nope, never in my life. I'm an average student.
