In middle school I was into all the sports programs offered at my school, but I moved into Provo my freshman year of high school. Coming from a small town, where the sports I was involved in were not quite as competitive, I didn't think I could take that route in high school now. So, I decided to try something new out and took a beginning ballroom class. I enjoyed it a lot and at the semester team auditions, i tried out and made it. And so it all started.
I was a part of a team! It made me feel important, loved, and needed. (I transferred in to my new high school in the middle of the first semester of my freshman year. It was really hard to make friends.) Plus, dancing was fun and very different from the hobbies I had been involved in previously.
