It was a big experience for me in my life because of all the responsibility i was given i had to make sure i was ready and dressed wearing the write thing for each of the 5 dances i did. I had to learn how to put away my fear of being in front of so many people. Growing up i was never too close to my mother. We never really talked or hung out. Since i joined dance it gives us something to bond over while she drives me to dance or drives me home we talk about what i learned i show her skills i'm progressing on and she comes to most of my performances.
She showed me the beautiful sport of soccer when I was six years old and I've loved it ever since. Over the years it has become harder and more stressful, but I have learned to make sacrifices in life. I have missed out on some of the most exciting experiences in high school from homecoming, to state championship games, but these were sacrifices I had to make to better myself and my game. The biggest challenge I face is losing friendships. It is difficult to maintain friendships due to being gone for four out of the seven days a week.
On the other hand, Figure skating takes up much more training time. The elite figure skater first warms up for thirty minutes, next he or she stretches for fifteen minutes, and then he or she warms up again and practices jumps off the ice for another fifteen minutes. Next the figure skater skates for about three hours, working on stroking, edges, spins, jumps, and competition programs. They often do these four minute long programs at least twice per hour. The figure skater then does an on-ice conditioning session for forty five minutes, and then gets off the ice.
After a time, I started losing interest in dance, it would always interfere with my after school activities, and the dances started to get harder as well. My mom, who loves the arts, convinced me to continue with dance as it will help you in the long run. Now, looking back I am glad that I listened. Ten years pass and I my teacher tells me that I am ready to graduate from Indian Classical Dance. She tells me that it is going to be a huge commitment.
But - one of the things related to sports is that a lot of people get injured, and they get into depression and they hit rock bottom. When I was 16, I pulled a muscle while I was training. There was a tear in the muscle, and surgery was too expensive and could possibly cause long-lasting problems, so I decided to wait for it to heal. At that point, I didn 't have enough money and help to take care of my injury and help continue my tennis career once I got better. Sports are expensive, especially if you want to go on a national/international level.
About two years ago I was a recreational dancer and all I wanted was to go onto the competitive team. Every class I would work so hard and push my limits so that I could be flexible enough for the competition. Audition day came and I made it onto the team. But a couple weeks later I found out that the dance studio closed. I was so bummed out, and I thought that I would never have that opportunity again.
One day when I was 10 years old. I was in dance special lesson in summer. These are hard schedule for accept SHIKI audition. The curriculum are made of jazz dancing, ballet and singing in all day summer vacation but I started dance 3 month before this. I do all things with effort and passion.
So from traditions through hard times my family has always pushed to achieve my goals. Whether it 's to save a certain amount of money to doing better in school they have always pushed me. I remember struggling really hard in the fifth grade with math and science. This year was when I got to be in a class with my teacher being pregnant. She was only there for a few months and then leaving for maternity leave.
Many people believe that life doesn’t come easy, and it 's not all sunshine and rainbows. Me, coming from an extreme sports background, tricks never came first try in fact, me learning my first turns on the hill took over weeks of repetition. I still, till this day struggle every time when I learn a new skill. Hours of swearing and constant falling helped me achieve my goal, and man how much more satisfying is the reward when you had to work so much more for it. To overcome these obstacles I look at it as three steps, to understand, to adapt and to prepare for what comes next.
Currently, my goals include becoming more skillful at Calculus and Physics, as I tend to have a harder time in those classes compared to my other ones. I’ve been working harder and harder to maintain a decent grade, and hopefully by the end of the quarter, I will have a much better grade than the last quarter. I also plan to uphold my participation in the multiple clubs I have membership in; I hope to find more volunteer opportunities and contribute more to the community and my school. It’s important to me that I remain a well-rounded student by succeeding in the classroom and by helping the
