While I was on my dance competition team, we were holding a fundraiser at Fatz. We did volunteer work their to raise money. We helped seat the customers, take their orders, make and serve their drinks, and serve them their food.
At this summer camp I assisted the campers with the leadership activities they were required to do in this program. I was also responsible for cleaning up after them and providing first aid. I did this for two summers.
At my church, around Halloween, we have an event called Fun Night. Kids come dressed in their costumes and participate in the activities. There's candy, food, games, face painting, and bouncy houses. As a volunteer, I make signs for each station, pass out candy at the stations, and help with the face painting.
Every summer we have Vacation Bible School for a week at my church. As a volunteer, I walk the younger kids to the different stations and help pass out the food on Friday.
My parents signed me up for dance class at the Ordained Praise School of Dance (OPSD) at the age of three. This dance school recently changed their name to The Freedom Center for the Creative Arts (TFC). I continued dancing for eleven years straight. During this time frame, I learned many different styles of dance. I know how to do tap, jazz, ballet, lyrical, hip-hop, majorette, African dancing, and line dancing. Once I got enough practice, I tried out for the competition team. I made the team and stayed on there for seven years. Our competition team would travel around and out of North Carolina to perform at dance competitions. On May 5, 2018, the dance trio that I was a part of won first place overall in a dance competition. That was our greatest achievement of TFC history. I enjoyed being a part of a dance team, because it was an opportunity to build bonds with very talented girls and make many strong friendships with my teammates. These eleven years of dance contained many laughs and memorable moments.
I participated in my church's youth Christmas play for ten years. I started at three years old and continued up until age 12.
I tried out for my school cheerleading squad at Shining Light Academy. I made the team and was chosen to be co-captain. I only did cheer for one basketball season at the school. During this experience, I was able to increase my flexibility. I learned how to do a proper toe touch and herkie. My position in the stunt category was the base. My favorite aspect of being a cheerleader was supporting our basketball team, holding pep rallies, fund raisers, attending home games, away games, and the homecoming game.
