I think, as a child, there weren't dreams. I can't recall as a child having some ultimate dream and thinking that it was possible.
Though I have tremendous support from lots of people, there are so many others waiting to tear me down.
All you can do is be your best self. I've always felt that I had to be that much more aware of how I present myself. I'm representing more than just me. I think every person should think that way.
You have to be the one promoting yourself. If you don't think that you're worthy, you're never going to make it.
I never thought of myself as special or particularly good at anything. But once I started ballet, suddenly I had a new identity: prodigy.
I wake up every morning, and I go to ballet class no matter what's going on the night before. That's my priority, and that's what makes me feel sane and not removed from the realities of my world.
