I have many interests. It’s hard to only pick a few to introduce to you today. If I had to choose a few, they would be dancing, painting, writing, and baking. I love these interests with a passion. These interests shaped me into the person I am. I’m grateful my family had the means and resources to allow me to do these hobbies.
I’ve been dancing since before I can remember. I love dancing. I train a total of about 20 hours a week in the studio. I pour my heart into my dancing and I express my story and emotions in my movements. I’ve come a long way from when I started. I’ve received trophies, scholarships, money, free trips, ect. I’ve been through so much with my team including: laughs, cries, excitement, and pain. I’ve been on long road trips along Alberta but the longest I’ve ever gone to dance is Los Angeles, CA. I’ve been exposed to dancing because of my family. A lot of my relatives still pursue the art today. I’m very interested in this passion and I look forward to dancing for many more years to come.
I love to paint. I’ll demonstrate my skills with watercolor, oil paint, and acrylic. I’ve been painting since i was young. Something about how the colors blend and the satisfaction when you’re finished excites me. I love experimenting with new color combinations. I enjoy this passion because it’s calming and relaxing.
One passion I’m interested in is writing. I keep a journal to write in and update in every single day. I’m not very good at expressing my emotions or feelings verbally so i find it a lot easier to express myself in my writing. I feel like it makes me more creative. I was really bad at reading a year or two ago but since I’ve been writing, i find it a lot easier now. Writing helps me practice to set my own deadlines, stick to a schedule, and set my own goals for more writing to come.
Another interest of mine is baking. I enjoy baking very much. The satisfaction of eating your own desert after the work you put into making it is so satisfying. I bake as much as I can so I can take my goods to school and I share them with my family. I try to be creative with what I bake and I’m always open to experimenting new things. My favourite part about baking is the smell that is delivered throughout the kitchen. Baking makes me so happy and calm.
