On October 14, 2015 I went to the Regional Arkansas State Fair Youth Talent Competition and performed my pointe dance solo (that was almost entirely self-choreographed) and won.
Who/what organization/entity recognized the achievement?
Arkansas State Fair
How did homeschooling help you achieve your goal:
Not only did homeschooling allow me the flexibility in my schedule to practice my dancing, but it also taught me to persevere and that no one is going to do it for you, you have to work hard if you want to see things happen whether in school, daily life, or the rigorous ballet world.
What are your interests?
My interests include becoming a professional ballet dancer, teaching others the beauty of dance.
What are you inspired to do with your life?
I would like to start a dance company that performs ballets which reenact Bible passages. Especially the passages about the Blessed Virgin because I don’t think that has been done before.
What are your favorite subjects?
My favorite subjects are Religion and Spanish, but I like all my subjects a lot!
