"I'm the greatest star, I am by far, but no one knows it."
"Can't regret, won't forget; what I did for love."
"I'd be right here to say: it’s okay, you were just born that way."
Only being 3 days into the program, I’m already having trouble making up my mind, especially choosing the groups. A part of me wants to be in each one. As long as I can remember, I’ve wanted to make it big, be accepted and be loved. When it comes down to it my dreams/career will always come first!
"Some women choose to follow men and some women choose to follow their careers, if you're having trouble choosing, just remember, your career will never wake up and tell you it doesn't love you anymore." - Stefanie Germonatta

This program has been great. I get to practice the arts and get better at it. I made some awesome friends and everyone here seems pretty cool and talented. The dances are cool, but I usually get lost and don’t know how to do the steps, haha. I just hope I can let my inner dancer and beast out. :)
Well, that’s all I have for now, so see ya later guys.

Hip hop. Not one of my talents but I don’t seem too bad at picking it up. I’m very good at picking it up. I’m very good at picking up choreography so I think it just comes naturally.
"I'm starting with the man in the mirror. I’m asking him to change his ways. And no message coulda been any clearer. If you wanna make the world a better place, take a look at yourself and make that change."
Honestly, I love dancing. When I was little, I used to dance and I was very good at it. In the sixth grade or so, I stopped dancing to take up soccer. A weird change, I know. My sister is in college for dance and has always told me I should pick it back up. I always said, "No, I don’t like dancing. It’s not what I want to do."
Last year we didn't do as much dancing as we had just moved. I’m grateful for Lindsey and the beautiful dancer she is for bringing that love back to me. And also for Courtney, Marilyn and even Lindsey for making dancing fun and encouraging that absolutely anyone can do it.
I am an actor because for a second, or a moment, or even an entire show I get to be someone else. All the problems I have I get to throw away and be a whole new person with totally different problems, different likes and dislikes and new people to love even.
