When I was younger I was always involved in some sort of activity or sport. From the young age of 5, I began dancing ballet and jazz. I was good at performing and I loved the feeling so I knew it was something I wanted to continue. I did that for a while and then went into swimming to try something new. I was actually really good at it, but didn’t enjoy it as much, so I quit.
Then, I went into basketball… that was a complete fail. Never had I ever failed at something so terribly. I still think about it sometimes when I come across old photos and I think it’s hilarious.
After that I dove deep into the sport of gymnastics. I had obsessed over this sport for a while, so when I finally had the chance, I put so much dedication and hard work into it. I was great at it! I loved pushing myself to perfect my routines and always looked forward to practice. At competitions I always placed, on a few occasions I even won 1st place. Unfortunately I quit that too, I felt that it was enough after 3 years.
Next I modeled for a few years, and ultimately went back to dancing. This time I joined a company that specialized in Colombian folklore dance. I stayed with this company for several years, performing at multiple events, parades and even had the opportunity to visit Telemundo studios.
Eventually I grew out of that phase and just stuck with high school dance team. There, the style of dance had more variety including, ballet, modern, jazz, and hip hop. Our team performed at school pep rallies, assembly’s and had an annual recital. However, I made great friends who shared the same interests in some of the most memorable years of life and for that I am glad I stuck with the team for all 4 years of school.
As you’re reading this, you’re probably wondering why I got bored of almost everything. The truth is, I don’t really know but I’m grateful to have had the opportunity to explore such hobbies. My childhood was great, fun and full of experiences I’ll always remember
