Story

I have overcome a lot and I'm honestly very proud of that, I had knee surgery March 2015, I was questioned on why I wanted to continue dance and why I didn't quit. It was really hard, I was told I wouldn't be able to do some of the things I was able to do before. After a lot of physical therapy I was finally back dancing. I was physically healthy again. Later that year I was raped, getting over this experience I have learned a lot, and struggled a lot as well. For a while I didn't want to dance, too much had happened to quick, I was still having knee pain and I emotionally wasn't recovering well. Now, March 2016. I still have my times where things get overwhelming but I've been back dancing for a few months and I don't think I've ever been happier. I have learned the past doesn't define you. Dance is my outlet and I don't know what I would do without it
