Sheer Grit and Determination

When my younger daughter was 5 years old, she asked if she could join a ballet class. I enrolled her at one of the nearby schools and thought it’s just a phase as many of us wanted to be ballerinas at this age. She however continued to show determination and so much love for ballet.

With her very first lesson in ballet, her teacher said, “she’s a keeper and very talented too.” I must admit I was sceptical of the teacher’s praise, thinking how’s it possible to recognize talent at a first glance.  She continued her ballet classes and did some ballet show’s bringing myself and others to tears with her beautiful renditions of her ballet performances.
