Joining a freestyle dance battle for the first time scared the life out of me that I almost backed out at the last minute. I didn't get in the coveted top 8 at the but it was such an awakening and overwhelming experience to be in the same room with fellow dancers - all of us absorbing each other's positive energy. I accomplished the reasons why I joined: to feel the music, to dance my heart out, and most importantly - to have fun.
I cringe whenever I watch this video (it's my first time so please cut me some slack :P) but I'm still posting it with hopes to inspire people to do the things you really, really want to do but too chicken to do it.
Big shout out to my friends Amanda, CKarel and Russel for pushing me to do this and believing in this awkward dancer. Here's to doing more things that scare us!
