This picture may not be some large achievement. It may not be an impressive pose. It may not be brilliant. Yet to me, it is a milestone. I have been dancing for fourteen years. However, during my sophomore year of high school I injured my back and ankle requiring me to take over a year off. The doctor didn't think I would be able to continue ballet and pointe work. This is my second year back at pointe since taking time off, and I am finally returning to my original level. It has been a hard and painful journey, but I am so proud of myself and how much I have accomplished.
