"I'm proud to have been chosen to be apart of Team USA for World Games," says Shakila Kirksey. "It makes me feel wonderful about myself and everyone else who was picked. We all worked very hard.  It means that I was a good person and a good athlete, and I will work hard and do my best."

"I have been involved [with Special Olympics] since 2009. Alesia Sexton asked me to participate in track and field and I have been participating in basketball, floor hockey, snow shoeing, softball, golf and bowling since then."

"My hobbies include watching tv, talking on the phone, babysitting, shopping and hanging out with friends."
