I remember as a little girl knowing that I would one day dance
professionally and own my own dance studio. I would dream about
it. I knew that I wanted to achieve great things and my parents
helped me reach for my dreams. They took me to dance classes 4
-5 days a week and made that possible for me. They let me attend
dance conventions and study in the summer in New York and Canada.
They sacrificed time and money for me and I worked to the best
of my ability to show my appreciation. They were so supportive
and gave me the confidence I needed and the moral support.
It is important to find someone; a parent, teacher, other relative
or coach who believes in you and will help you in achieving your
"The will to win, the desire to succeed, the
urge to reach your full potential
these are the keys that
will unlock the door to personal excellence."
