If I could do what I love, I would teach dance. More specifically, I would teach dance to special needs children. Teaching the world how creative and intelligent these individuals are will change how the world views them. Educating people about special needs individuals will potentially make the world be more grateful for what they have and still allow them to see that there are no limitations to what they can do. If someone deemed handicapped could make something of themselves, then there is no excuse for someone who is capable. Specials needs people are smarter and can do more than we think they can. For example, my junior year in high myself and a couple of other girls from my first period dance class used to dance with the special needs young men to help them work on their social skills in preparation for the Best Buddies prom. To my surprise, they knew the moves to the dances their teachers taught them and they were very sociable. It is something I will never forget. Another thing that sparked my love to interact with special needs kids is my little cousin. When he was three years old he started losing his hearing. Seeing him sign to his mother “How are you?” really touched my heart. It made me realize that someone so small and considered “impaired” had a gift. That led me to go to school for business so i could open a Performing Arts School for Special Needs Children.
