2. Dance

I was fine. Everything was fabulous. My routine for each day was structured and organised. I prioritised school work, GCSE’s were important and I wanted to be successful. It seemed stupid to waste the chance when I could do well.

Dancing was always second on my list. I loved to dance and choreograph. Music guided me away from life and I could forget the day. It was a break from academic studying. But it soon became more than that.

Dancers are expected to be tall, slim and pretty. I was tall, yes, but not pretty. I had a mole on my face and small freckles, my eyes were dull and my hair was mouse coloured. There was no beauty there. And slim? No way was I slim, my waist was 26 inches and my hips 30 inches. I was verging on fat. I had to dance to keep my weight under control.

I was leading a good life. But then I began exams and the dreaded C word. Coursework!
