I learned how to be confident from theatre. Before high school I was worried because I was going to a new school with not many friends. The older theatre kids took me in and introduced me to the incredible world of musical theatre. My entire life I played guitar and sang alongside my dad and sister, so I was used to performing. I never realized that musical theatre would change my life forever. Being center stage in the spotlight made me feel free. Free from stress, free from anger, and free from worries. The stage gave me a certain kind of confidence that nothing else could. Performing taught me that talent takes hard work, a gift, and humbleness. Too much pride results in cockiness, but I learned quickly that there was always room for improvement. Performing in musicals gave me confidence that I use in every aspect of my life. The confidence helped me make friends in college, it gave me a voice, and it pushed me to audition for more musicals in college. If I hadn't been so passionate about performing I would not be the same person today.
