17 Steps Between A Dancer And Her Dream
12-year-old Meg always had the dream to be a dancer. Adopted as a baby, Meg came to the United States with her sister when she was just 3-months old. Her new parents noticed that she was having difficulties with certain developmental phases and, after bringing her to the doctor, Meg was diagnosed with cerebral palsy at age 1.
"Follow your dreams, believe in yourself and don't give up."
Meg is a passionate dreamer and never let her diagnosis stop her from living a full life. One day she was at her sister's dance recital and burst out crying. That was what she really wanted to do; she wanted to dance.
Meg danced at "A Dancer's Dream" from the age of 4 to 7, but as her condition worsened it was too difficult for her to make it up the 17 steps to the studio. She stopped attending classes. But her fighting spirit never give up. She wanted to join the 'Dream Team' so she practiced hard at home and when she was 10 years old she was finally able to climb the steps with the support of her dance team.
This is her 4th year dancing and says it's the best part of her life. Being in a wheelchair, Meg's parents weren't sure how Meg was going to make her dream come true, but with the support of the local dance team and creative director Beth Wheeler, Meg is now a member of "A Dancer's Dream" dance team and inspiring her friends to never give up!
