Thank You

“Someday you’ll look back and understand why it all happened the way it did…”

Dear Ms. Sam

I can’t express to you how truly grateful I am to have had this opportunity with The Platform. I have learned so many lessons from the first time we began choreographing my solo where you challenged me to use my own creativity to form a dance routine alongside you. You taught me how to open myself to the audience and share with them the magic that I feel when I dance. The Platform taught me to push myself out of my comfort zone and believe in myself, to cope with disappointment and to embrace the feeling of achievement. 

This was the biggest gift anyone could have possibly given to me and I am still overwhelmed with joy and inspiration. None of this would have happened without you providing the encouragement and inspiration for me to audition for The Platform, which led to the amazing Shadow Experience opportunity with The Australian Ballet.

I look back on this little part of my journey and realise how much I have grown as a person and a dancer.

Thank you so much Ms. Sam. 



Gratitude changes everything.
