-- Insider's Guide to High School --

Want friends? Try sports!

By Edrees Kakar

PESHAWAR, Pakistan – Want to make friends? Try sports!

Sports offer real benefits for health, wealth and happiness in anyone’s life, even for non-athletes.

Sports are peace ambassadors between nations, ethnic groups and other different groups of people. Beyond that, they offer friendly entertainment.

Besides education, sports are the one thing that helps people stay on the right path. Any kind of sport makes the human body fit, which makes everything else we do easier.

Through tourism, hobbies and other kinds of businesses, sports can also provide jobs and help a country’s economy.

Because of this, I think everyone should take part in sports.

It’s a good way to have fun and make massive numbers of great friends – that's why I call sports a peace ambassador.

For all the back-to-school advice any high school student could hope for, check out The Tattoo's Insider's Guide to High School, which has been providing invaluable help for harried teens for eight years, as well as our our new issue for 2007!
