The Literacy of Paintball

In his literacy narrative, Alexandro Garcia discusses how he first started learning and playing paintball at a birthday party when he was twelve. As a first time player, he was really good at the game and was actively encouraged to pursue the sport further. He began researching different paintball guns and, with the help of his father, saved up for his own. Alexandro continued playing throughout high school and was even encouraged to join a competitive team; however, he felt as though playing for competition would lessen his experience.

Check out the full version of Alexandro’s narrative at the respective link above. I hope you enjoy his story as I have.
