What I have overcome to continue dancing, is fear of letting others judge me. Every time I get on that stage to perform, I know all eyes are on me. I know they're all watching me. But I never know what they're thinking. What if they think I'm a bad dancer or what if they think I don't have enough talent? Those thoughts always haunt me.

The style of dance I really love to enjoy is contemporary. I love dance because it lets me be free. I can show what I'm capable of. And I can express the way I feel through dance.
