When I think about all the challenges there are twothat seem the biggest, one of them was choreographing and the other is livingaway from home for the first time.
The first time I choreographed a dance for atalent show I was the most nervous I have ever been. I was taking dance classesbut I did not know if the talent I had in dancing would transpire intochoreographing. I remember listening to the song I had to choreograph for morethan twenty times to memorize every beat and every lyric in it. I wanted tochoreograph something that showed the meaning of the song which is extremelyhard to accomplish.
After I was certain that I knew the whole song I wrote on apaper the names of the people that were going to dance and numbered them. Inanother piece of paper, I started doing the first formation of the dance.Afterwards, I started thinking of steps for the chorus and start of the dance. WhenI was positive of the movements I taught them to the students that were goingto dance. Thanks to the opportunity I was given I discovered I lovedchoreographing as much as dancing. Thesecond biggest challenge I have faced is living away from my family for thefirst time. On September 2017 Hurricane Maria passed by Puerto Rico anddevastated the island. There was no power, water or communications for a longperiod of time.
I was not going to be able to finish my senior year on time,therefore, my family and I decided I should move to my aunt house in Floridaand finish my senior year on the United States. The first week in my new schoolwas dreadful, I did not know where my classrooms were or anyone in the school.Come my second week and I started getting situated better and spoke to some ofthe people in my classes. I found the school part of my move easy but what wasdifficult was being away from my family and friends. My parents and brotherstayed in Puerto Rico and so did all of my friends, because of that I gothomesick quite a lot. I would talk to my friends and my mom every day and thatmade me feel like I was still there with them.
Sometimeslife gives you an opportunity and you have to choose if you will take it ornot. They can be the best thing that ever happened to you or you can fail andeither try again or try something else. In my opinion, the greatest challengesin life are the ones you benefit from the most.
