Story

At the young age of 2, I began to dance. I did not fully begin to fall in love with dance and begin to appreciate it until the age of 11. I am now 14 and find that dance is my "happy place." I can truly be myself and express whether I am happy or whether I am sad or whatever emotions I may be feeling. I am thankful that I have been blessed with a great support system to continue to do what I love. My greatest obstacles are continuing this journey I love and letting go of the distractions of the "I can't" and just knowing dreams can come true and this makes me my best self. I know with hard work and dedication I can be anything I set forth to be! This is a journey and a beautiful journey at that!!! Enjoy every moment. You can't get this moment back.

Never give up and be your own best self!!! Do not compare yourself to others. Love your body and it will love you back!!!! Dance with your heart and it is so true that your feet will follow. One of my favorite quotes is one my Mother posted on my door 2 years ago. It says, "The more you push through the challenges, the easier they become! Never Give Up!!! It never gets easier. You just get stronger."
