Meet Brooke Phillips, 15, from Starz Elite Dance Center.
Can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I have always loved to dance, and it has always been my passion. I just kept and will keep working hard.
We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?
Yes and no, some things in dance have come easy, but I have had to work super hard to get a lot of things.
What personal limitations, if any, did you go through in your young career?
Having confidence and staying positive.
Has anybody ever tried to limit you on what you could do? If so, how did you fight it?
No, I have always had a great support system.
How do you conquer negative talk?
I always remind myself why I am doing what I am doing and how much I love it.
What is your favorite quote?
What you think you become, what you feel you attract, what you imagine you create.
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
Not sure, just excited for the future and what is in store.
