Ever since the moment Mum enrolled me in ballet five years ago, I've loved every step. This year I came across some challenges through petit jetes and spring points. So I practised and practised with Mum, sometimes at school and ballet classes. I can now do it. This accomplishment makes my heart rise. I am pleased with how hard I worked. Today I did my second exam. I feel relieved and proud. Getting to join Queensland Ballet in The Nutcracker would be a dream come true.
