.....It has been a rough couple of years for my family financially…I knew I needed to persevere and that things would get better. This past year, everything finally started looking up!  I found out about The Dallas Conservatory (TDC)..... and I am so grateful for the opportunities that I have been given by TDC to really push myself this year to reach new heights! However, the reality is that these opportunities also come at a cost. It is very expensive to attend competitions, and I want to do everything I can to help my family save those fees. So this scholarship would mean a lot to me at this critical time of my dance training.
