"As a teenager, I find that I have too much emotion condensed into a fragile frame. Through dance I’m able to release everything that causes me anguish. I can say everything without saying anything at all. When I am mad, I dance; when I am sad, I dance; when I’m happy, I dance! It brings me peace of mind and comfort. I am my better self while dancing, and through dancing I’ve been able to find my best self. … Most of all, when I look back on life I will remember how much dance refined me and how much I loved it. Just the memory will fill my life with happiness. My dance has defined me, and it will continue to do so."
