WEEK 6 PROMPT: As an author, I chose hip hop as my characters chosen type of dance as I believe it in one of the best styles to be able to express yourself and express your feelings to the world. In the dance field, my character can show who she is as a person in an informal setting which is relaxed and accepting.
WEEK 6: It was important to recognize that every kid finds it hard to balance school work, a social life, as well as their chosen sport. This is something that every kid in highschool experiences. As an author, I also had to balance the fields that I was participating in.
WEEK 6 PROMPT: As an author, I had to relocate from my home town in order to pursue my career aspirations. I understand the financial hardship that can be experienced by parents for them to be able to send their children away to different cities so that they have better access to facilities.
WEEK 6 PROMPT: As an author I also was placed in dance classes from a young age. Although I chose a different sporting career in my teenage years, dancing was also something that I loved doing and watching.

WEEK 6 PROMPT: As a female author, my biases led me towards choosing a female character. As dancing is a female dominated sport I believed it would be more appropriate to pick a female character. Dancing is seen as a very feminine sport that involves being in touch with your body and many males would prefer to be involved in a sport that promotes their masculinity.
WEEK 5 PROMPT: As a dancer there is always room for improvement. To reach my full potential in dancing, I need to first be able to fully understand myself. That way I can express myself through my dance and be fully in tune with myself and the culture that surrounds me.
WEEK 5 PROMPT: Appearing on television on shows like So You think you can dance is a great way to get yourself into the dance industry and promote yourself worldwide. I plan on auditioning as soon as I turn 18.
WEEK 5 PROMPT: If and when I become successful whether it be dancing or as a physiotherapist I plan to give back to my parents. School and dance lessons can be very expensive and my parents have worked so hard to support my lifestyle.
