At Grant, there’s a chance you’ve seen Angelo Accus. He’s the kid who flips and tumbles his way around campus. He spends time teaching anyone how to be acrobatic. People, he says, find it interesting and they want to learn. His friend, Justin Robinson (left), tries to keep up.
“When I first landed an aerial, people were like: ‘Whoa, that’s incredible.’ So I kept on doing it and since then it’s just been practice makes perfect. I’ve definitely met new people and made friends because of this. I get so much out of it. Happiness, exercise, skill. There aren’t any downsides. I practice almost every day. It has a lot of feedback loops to it because once everybody has something that they’re learning or already know, people tend to help each other.”
