The Reason I Will Not Be An All Star

This past june my life was almost ended. One night I had a major accident that changed my life. I injured myself very badly and to the extent where I had to be rushed to the hospital immediately. This accident has cause me to be unable to dance which is why I’m writing this letter.

Every doctor that I have been to since has said “wow… you’re lucky you are alive…” or “people with kind of accident are usually are pronounced dead on the spot..”

Therefore I just want to tell everyone single one of you how much your support and encouragement means to me. It makes me fight through this bump in the road. The kind things you have said to me and things you have done for me truly mean the world. One day I will be back on my feet and dancing and doing the things I love to do. In the mean time I am so lucky to be living breathing and opening my eyes everyday.

I will never take anyone of you and your support for granted because every single one of you are important weather I know you or not. You have made my journey from sytycd to now more than a dream and I can’t thank you enough for it.

Always cherish the things that you have, even if they are the smallest things because it can all be taken away in the snap of a finger. My heart goes out to each and everyone of you with so much thanks!

This is not the end. God has a plan. I won’t give up till I’m on that stage again.

Much love and thanks,
