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.
