Every once in awhile we all still come across a gloomy day. After a few months of refocussing my life, I am extremely content. Leaving a public school was the best thing for me. I see life differently and appreciate life much more than I ever have.
Dance and music helps to keep me sane. Without these two components in my life, I do not know where I would be. Focusing on working hard in the studio and at home has distracted my mind from the negatives of society. I have been auditioning for many dance programs and will be spending five weeks at the University of North Carolina for the comprehensive dance intensive. In an upcoming performance of Cinderella I will be performing as the roll of the Fairy Godmother.
Along with dance being one of the most supportive getaways in my life, family and friends have helped. Between my immediate family, to the extended, and friends, I have had one of the greatest support systems. We all wish everyday can be full of happiness, but unfortunately that will never be the case. With many individuals supporting me I have grown to be more kind and mentally/physically healthy.
I am thankful for everyday and every individual that has come through my life. Without the challenges I have experienced I would not be the person I am today. Proud to say I have come this far and I have learned to love myself and be happy as my own individual.
