What about this quality or accomplishment makes you proud and how does it relate to the person you are?Even when times were tough, my childhood spirit never dies. With all the problems going on in my life, I tend to ignore it by dancing. It was sort of my "getaway" from all the troubles I had. To me, dancing was something I can express myself in. I am a whole different person once the music starts to play. Because my parents never have enough money for me to attend dance classes, I always dance at home. I remembered watching videos of different choreography and eventually made up my own. I built a little dance studio in the corner of my living room and dance my mind away.I always had the urge to become a dancer when I grow up. I told myself that I would become some sort of performer as I get a little older. I didn't mind dancing in front of others to entertain them. Seeing others delighted with my technique is enjoyable. Even though I grew out playing tag or hide-and-go seek with friends, my dancing mode never faded. I still wanted to be a dancer and I still love to dance.As I approached high school, I learned about the different clubs that has dancing involved. However, being the risk taker that I am, I chose cheerleading. I wasn't ever that cheerleader type nor I was never that girly type either; I mainly tried out because of the choreographs. I was fascinated by the dances that they do during rallies and I merely told myself, "Lets do this!"Dancing and performing is like life; when you mess up, you keep on going and never stop for the one mistake. The talent of dancing made a huge impact on my life. Not only did it helped me escape all my problems even if it was for a little while, but it also helped me persevere in life when it throws difficult obstacles at me. Like dancing, I learned to never give up and keep moving forward even when I make mistakes.Everyone has a talent. Whatever it is finding that special talent will help you move forward; kind of like a lotus flower finding sunlight in muddy water. When all odds are against it, it will still rise up, to bloom.
