Lolo Jones would always wake up early and make it look like someone dropped her off there so that the other kids wouldn't make fun of her. In the year 2004, Lolo jones wanted to retire from track after she didn't qualify for the Summer Olympics in Athens, Greece but Shaver told her that he would see her tomorrow morning for practice.

The first learner profile I would say she is, is a risk-taker because when she runs she knows that she can accidently hurt herself badly. The other learner profile is caring because she donated shoes to a school because she knew how it was like growing up without being able to afford shoes.
