Practice makes progress!

My mummy says that I "found my voice" in the Grade 1 Performer’s Assembly. “Found my voice”? I’m not sure what it means but my mummy told me that as a little child, I always tagged along to my older sister’s activities. You see, my eldest sister, Tara is a gymnast; she loves ballet and is very sporty. As for me, I don’t like being sweaty, so I have always stayed away from sports.
 
After much persuasion, mummy finally agreed to sign me up for the Performer’s Assembly. So in Grade 1, I sang a solo piece, It’s a Hard Knock Life, from the musical Annie to the Infant School. From that day onwards, I realised that I love to perform and want to be a triple threat performer! Triple threat requires you to be strong in three areas – singing, dancing and acting. With mummy and daddy’s help, I enrolled in singing lessons; joined Junior Singers and did some acting and dancing lessons.
 
Recently, I realised talent itself without hard work is not enough. I am fortunate to be chosen as 1 of 18 kids (3 groups of 6) to perform in the Broadway/West End musical, Evita. I have learnt just how hard the lead actors and actresses have to work.  I now know that in every thing I do, I need to practice and put in lots of effort! My new motto is “practice makes progress!” And it's also ok to get sweaty if it’s something that you love!
