My name is Danna Roberta Rodriguez Chavez, 9, and I live in Monterrey, NL. I dance at Estudio de Danza Maries.
Can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I started dancing when I was 2 1/2 years old. When I turned 4, I was invited to be part of the dance company at my academy.
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?
No, I've had to work a lot on myself, mainly my legs and feet.
What personal limitations if any did you go through in your young career?
I thought I wouldn't be able to be as good as the girls that danced in the company because they were older than me.
How do you conquer negative talk?
I believe in myself and what I'm able to do.
What is your favorite quote?
"Follow your dreams and never give up." - Author Unknown
So, what’s next? Any big plans?
I want to have a dance academy and give classes at conventions.
