Black news from Pasadena - Youth Page - Milan Walker and Junior OlympicsI Made It to the Junior Olympics!
By Milan Walker

If you didn't read my last article, I made it to the U.S. Track and Field National Junior Olympics in Shot Put. The events were held in Humble, Texas. It was very humid. It was so hot and humid there that it started raining.

In the Junior Olympics, I did way better than I thought I would. I reached a personal record. With the help of all my coaches from the Pasadena Running Roses and the support of my friends, my family and my teacher, Mrs. DeGroof, I came in fifth in my group and 16th in the nation for Shot Put.

And next year, I'm going to do it again.

Hey, Auri!

The Hey Auri! column is dedicated to answering your questions and providing helpful advice.

Hey, Auri!

How are you able to manage juggling your friendships?

I recently had a falling out with one of my close friends and I am not sure how to handle the situation. I don't want to go into detail about what happened, but to sum it up, I felt like I was wronged by my friend, and my friend felt wronged by me. I also feel like I value the friendship more than my friend does.

Should I just end the friendship? Please give me some advice, I really need it.

Sincerely, No New Friends?

Hey "No New Friends?",

Well, for starters, I am sorry that you and your friend had a falling out.
