This is an important moment in my life because it was when I first was born and became me. My birthday is a big part of my life because I'm really thankful to be born into a loving and supportive family.
I started dance
When I started dance at age three I never knew that I would end up doing it forever and loving it so much. I started dance when I was three at my preschool and I took a tap and ballet class. This event is important to me because it's when I first started dance and if I didn't have this point I wouldn't be the person I am today because dance makes up a lot of my life.
Brother developed cancer
When I started Kindergarten by brother developed leukemia cancer at 13. At the time I didn't really know what was going on or what he was dealing with but now that I am much older he is one of my biggest inspirations. After I understood what he went through I connected with him better and had a stronger relationship with him. This point makes me who I am because even though cancer is horrible I know that my brother is my biggest inspiration and it has made our relationship even stronger.
Move to public school two weeks into first grade
My first year in kindergarten I was in a very small charter school. I only had around ten students in my class. My parents decided to move me the second week of school to public school because the charter school wasn't teaching me. It was hard at first because I was shy when I was little but it gave me to opportunity to a better education. This event is important to me because without moving schools I wouldn't meet my good friends today and I wouldn't be able to get a good education.
Started getting bullied in middle school
In the start of sixth grade I started getting bullied by what I wore. A lot of the people that used to bully me were my friends in elementary school. It was hard to see the people that I called my friends be so mean to me. This point is important to me because it taught me that others opinions don't matter and I shouldn't take peoples comments on how I look to seriously.
Moved from Ballet to Competition Dance
When I was in sixth grade my ballet teacher started making comments about me and my dancing. These comments hurt me a lot because it wasn't constructive criticism, it was comments on I shouldn't even try because I'm so bad or I will never become good. I started believing these things and started losing my passion for dance. My mom brought me to a competitive studio and I was put into competitive dance. When I was put into competitive dance I found my passion again and I started believing in myself more. This point makes me who I am because if I didn't switch to competitive dance I don't think I would be still dancing.
When I when to high school I only had eight kids from my middle school going to the same high school as mine. It really scared me to have only eight people I knew because everyone else going to the high school knew a lot of people from middle school and I didn't know anyone. I felt anyone a lot of the time because I felt like everyone had friends and I didn't. In reality it wasn't actually like that because everyone was just trying to get a new start just like me. This point makes me who I am because it taught me that even though new situations can be scary they help you grow into a better person.
Jan Sophomore Year
Sophomore year of high school was one of the worse years of high school for me. I ended up losing a lot of my friends due to are different schedule and I found myself feeling like I did freshman year alone. I developed a lot of anxiety of not being good enough and not having friends. I ended up missing a lot of school because I had so much anxiety built up in me. This point makes me who I am because even though it was one of my hardest years ever I became closer to God after this situation.
Moved to Private School
After developing a lot of anxiety over school and missing a lot of days of school my parents decided that it would be best if I moved schools. I ended up moving to a very small private christian school. It was hard at first because I was moving school very late in the year and I was moving to a very small school where everyone had their groups. Although it was hard a first it was one of the best decisions for me because I became closer to God and I met amazing students and teachers. This point makes me who I am because without moving school I don't think I would be as confident as I am today.
Start of Senior Year
Senior year has been one of my favorite years by far of my high school career. I feel confident in myself and in my grades. Senior year I become friends with my best friend today and I don't know what I would do without her in my life. This point makes me who I am today because without senior year I wouldn't be experiencing the happiest time I have ever been in high school ever.
