I’ve been at my new school for six weeks and my greatest moment of pride so far has been performing in the Autumn concert with the acapella girls.
I never used to sing! Not even infront of my closest friends. I didn’t have the confidence! My parents can both sing (Dad you need to join the band as a lead singer) , so I took the odds that I could too.
I started acapella with the encouragement of my close friend. We went and I haven’t missed a rehearsal since.
I took the jump to perform “true colours” at the concert as an alto. I made lots of friends within my group and there was a fantastic atmosphere of community between the different groups (choir, macapella etc).
The song meant a lot to me. I’ve changed a lot over the summer and my “true colours” have been unleashed (a bit).
I loved every moment of the concert. Turns out…I can sing? Which is a little crazy but has definitely boosted my confidence to sing in front of people, unlike before.
I grow outside of my comfort zone…
On another positive note I have pushed my comfort zone again by auditioning for a national dance competition with my school, I have been given a large acting part which is incredible because the crew is so talented, it’s an honour to be selected!
I’ve also dived into my school’s leadership team as a form representative, deputy house representative and a prefect.
Singing, dancing, acting and leading. The things I’ve pushed my boundaries on.
I’m so proud 🙂
