To stay motivated I like to set very high goals for myself, and all of my objectives are more than what I need to achieve. For example, I have a current goal of being on the President’s Honor Roll, and to achieve that, I need to maintain all A grades in the semester. Dancing is another example of how I can be an overachiever. Ever since I first started ballet, I have always studied through the Royal Academy of Dance methods, and at the end of every year, a dance instructor from London would come to Brazil to evaluate each student, and give us a grade that would decide if we can move on to the next level. On evaluation day, all of the students had to wear matching black leotards, and perform the same combos and skills.
