Pelham • North Carolina
Compared to stories I've read I haven't overcome very much. Financial situations are rough because I live in such a poor county and it can be tough to make ends meet and pay for dance lessons, costumes and pictures. My favorite style of dance is either tap or contemporary. They're both pretty great. I dance because it gives me a sense of purpose. It has been my life since I was two and a half and I can't imagine going a day without it. It's my passion and I'm just now getting the opportunity, after 14 years of dancing, to be a choreographer and I couldn't be happier with life.
