Boston, Massachusetts, United States
At the age of seven, I began learning traditional Chinese dancing. Today at twenty, it is a great passion of mine that allows me to retain a piece of my family’s culture while living in America. Since I was very young, I trained and put countless hours into practicing the moves, perfecting the rhythm of dance, and understanding the significance of the dances within my culture. Not only do I consider it a significant piece of my self-image, but my family members do as well. It means a great amount to my family as it shows that I making an effort to preserve the culture of my heritage.
