I never knew hooping was such a popular activity until I began researching it. Although I can't see myself as a die-hard "Hooper" like some of my friends, I think it's pretty cool to have learned how to do something that I never learned to do as a kid. I never thought I could do it... I just didn't have the right tools! So much in life is like that. Never doubt yourself!
