Freshman Alina Hall has spent her whole life living with asthma.

Diagnosed at 2 years old, she is now 14 years old and has found her calling doing karate.

“Karate is the main thing I do,” Hall said. “It can get hard when I am running or doing things because I get out of breath so much easier than everyone else.”

Luckily for her, she doesn’t miss a lot of school because of it.

“School really isn’t something affected by asthma, for me at least,” she said. “I think I am pretty lucky for that.”

However, the months before school started were a bit more difficult for her, though.

“Last summer was bad for me. I was at the YMCA, and we had to go underwater, and I ended up having to go to the hospital because I couldn’t breathe,” Hall said.

Hall said she plans to continue karate, and she hopes to move forward and not let her disease get in the way of her everyday life.
