My piece this semester is all about having fun and letting out that funky, quirky self that we all have inside of use. In past semesters, I have drawn inspiration from very serious, personal experiences and while my initial inspiration for this piece comes from an emotional place, I have chosen to turn it into an all out dance party. During my audition last semester, someone told me how funny I was. I never really thought anyone except for me thought that I was funny because it was difficult for me to let that side of myself out around certain people. This year by surrounding myself with people who encourage my quirky ways, I was able to let that funny personality out and have the confidence to put it on the stage. I no longer care if people think I’m a fool because the people that matter to me support who I truly am—a quirky, funny person who isn’t afraid to be just that. It’s my last semester in DTG, so it’s about time I go out with a bang.
