“I would like to share with you my achievements this year in dance that has helped me achieve where I am today with the help of the scholarship. Well since I have been lucky enough to have been given a scholarship, I feel this has helped me gain more confidence within myself, but also it has given me the ability to develop life skills and independence.”

“The scholarship has given me the confidence to grow and to better myself within dance. I feel every time I step on stage I get better and better. I have listed below my achievements this year.”
