Story

I consider myself lucky. Lucky to be alive, to be able to control my illness (there are times when I can’t and I have to give in and go to hospital). Lucky to be able to have friends who also have chronic illness’ and they understand what it is like to go through it. Obviously school has never been easy and dance too with being in hospital all the time rumors spread fast and people just didn’t ‘get it’ – no matter how many times I explained I had a chronic illness. I’m still lucky I’m able to get a solid education ,to dance and hopefully one day become a dancer/zookeeper , help other people like me and share my love of dance.

TO NEVER GIVE UP on dance because I know I didn't. Just get back up and try again.
