I have many people in my life who I am inspired by daily, namely my dance teacher and studio director.
In a world where men primarily dominate the artistic and choreographic staff of dance studios and companies,
her success in running a studio that offers both quality training and a tight-knit community is unique and inspiring.
Among other skills I have acquired in my time dancing, I attribute my work ethic to the environment that she has facilitated at our studio.
She encourages me and my fellow classmates to work hard and eagerly tackle new challenges.
Under her instruction, I have learned to accept constructive criticism and constantly strive for self-improvement, not just in dance, but in all aspects of life.
