Why I stopped pursuing ballet as a career.

It’s indescribable— to be in the moment, dancing, where my body was connected to the music, was the most freeing thing. My heart lights up on fire thinking about it ✨

That is the reason I dance, and the sole reason that got me through the not-so-great moments. I stopped dancing professionally to protect that. I didn’t want to destroy my love for the arts.

Protect your dreams. Protect your passions. Protect yourself. Embrace your journey. Everything happens for a reason.
