Please write a short essay (2 or 3 paragraphs) describing yourself to the people viewing the website. Let people know who you really are. Keep in mind the questions you’ve already been asked and include other things that you would like people to know about you.

I’m only 13.  Im in 7th grade.  I dance at Art in Motion Dance Company.  I am in my second year of cheerleading.

Please write a short essay (2 or 3 paragraphs) explaining your passion for your platform and your stance on the subject. Be sure to name your platform and give a brief explanation of its purpose as well.

My Platform is dancers unite.  It is about bullying in schools and dance classes.  Many people don’t realize that bullying is just as bad or worse than they are in schools.  For instance in dance, I have been bullied many times for the way I dance or what I wear.  I hope that I can spread the word about bullying no matter where it is or what kind.
