I have a huge family and I have so many little cousins and I love doing things with them and taking care of them. Also when I was little and I had some student helpers teaching me, I thought it was so cool and I always wanted to do it.
  5. What’s something from dance that’s helped you in school or somewhere else in your life? In dance you learn a variety of things. Certain manners you learn help you in your outside life. Also since I’ve been doing dance for so long, if I wanted to join a certain sport or dance team I might be a little ahead and be able to do the things we have to.
