I was six when I had my first dance recital and I was disappointed that I did not have a bigger role. To be fair, I had just started dancing but was determined to not be a little kid and dance with my friends. After my dance was over my mom came over to me and told me how proud of me she was. I was satisfied. 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.
I kept ignoring any conversation with my friends that related to the dance squad team because I did not want to admit to the insecurities that were running through my mind – I pretended that I didn’t want to be on the dance squad, but deep down inside it is all I thought about. It is all I wanted, and that is what I did. Suddenly, I gathered enough confidence (with a lot of encouragement from my friend Ashley) and told myself I will just try out for the dance squad team. By then, a week had already passed, and the girls who signed up had already learned the choreography. I felt as if I would be too behind, and that I wouldn’t be capable of learning the choreography on time.

We first-borns are perfectionists, consequently, we feel the pressure to be the best. I always felt like I had to set an example for my younger sister. I wanted her to look up to me with pride, so ever since I was little I tried to be good to my parents, teachers, and friends. I dedicated myself to everything I did, like school and sports. I gave it all my best effort so I could inspire my sister to do the same.
Introduction Growing up I always heard my mother jokingly say, “I’m a good daycare worker because I’m such a good mom, or maybe it’s the other way around.” My mother swore that the things that she learned from working at the daycare changed how she chose to raise her kids. From what I’ve heard of how my older brothers were raised, years before my mother was a daycare workers, she was right. This one case seemed to be true, but I wanted to explore how other people thought their occupations affected their parenting. How people should discipline their kids, or who should take care of them after school, or even how much time you should spend with them has been the focus of family sociology and politics for decades. These social scientists, however,
The daughter Pearl was only allowed “(…) to dance because [her parents] had no place else to put her (…)” while they were working at a factory. She was at first placed home alone but later brought to the factory with her parents while they were working. But a ballet school unexpectedly “(…) plucked Pearl out to be one of their scholarship students” with whom she could be with instead of being dragged to the factory every day. The ballet changed quite a few things both in Pearl’s but also in the family’s life. “(…) she became suddenly popular” and because she received praises from other mothers she had to “(…) translate their words” so her own mother would be able to understand it.
“It gives me a break from school and just everything. I can practice dance anytime anywhere.” She practices dance a few hours a week, depending on her homework and other sports practices. “I try to dance whenever I can,” she explains. “Dancing is fun because you get to listen to music and be with your friends.” The more she dances, the more she loves doing it. Jordan added, “I love to finish learning a new dance; it's like the same feeling as crossing things off your to-do list.” Jordan believes dance has helped her to develop responsibility, time management, and organizational skills.
Along with my parents, I also relied a lot on the support of my sister, she has her early childhood degree, so when I was younger, if my parents were not able to help me, I would often ask my sister for help and she was able to provide the support that I needed. Luckily, I went to a great public school, where my teachers were willing to work with their students, so if there were things that I could not understand, I was able to stay after school to get extra support from
She wanted to become a teacher after college and I always tell her, she was a teacher. She often taught me how to be responsible, and respect I Know my mom is a amazing role model because throughout my 17 years of life she has shown me herself how to become a respectful, warm-hearted, kind and responsible learder and woman. I always make mistakes but my mom always forgives me. I can say proudly she knows me down to a science. If something was wrong she could tell just by looking at me.
