Motion of the Ocean: My Deep Fear of Water

Hannah Guan

When I was five, my parents took me and my sister to our first swim lesson. My sister, being the brave soul that she is,  had no problem being underwater. I, however, screamed the moment the water reached my hips. I begged and cried for my parents to let me go home, since I was too afraid to even enter the water. This fear has subsided as I have gotten older, but definitely has not gone away. I chose the theme of water for this dance not only to mock myself for my fear of water, and also to overcome it.

See you in my next post!
