Untapped Story: Rejection is Part of the Art

Taylor Jenkins • Virginia, USA

“I was turned down by four colleges for dance before I got accepted. That was so very hard, but I didn’t let that stop me because dance is something that I will always strive for! I love it more than anything! Don’t let anyone or anything stop you cause here I am dancing in college doing what I love everyday! it is possible! It is going to be okay, your gonna be okay. Everyday we tell ourselves “I’m not good enough”and “I wanna quit,” but you can’t quit cause this is you this is your one true love and it won’t quit on you so don’t quit on it. It’s ok to fail- everyone does. I’ve been rejected from auditions and schools, does it hurt yeah, but that should never stop you. Rejection is part of the art, it’s what you do after that is what really matters.”
