Talent is defined as a special ability that allows someone to do something well. Love is defined as warm attachment, devotion, and enthusiasm. This clearly sums up my connection to the performing art of dance. My name is Shante Williams, I am 17 years old, and I am currently a senior in the Performing Dance program at Benjamin N. Cardozo High School. Though my years may be small, I dream big. I am currently the Artistic Director, Choreographer, and Captain of Dancers unite through Choreography and Charity. Dancers unite through Charity and Choreography started out as a High School club roughly 6 years ago. It was known as a safe haven and second family for many of the Cardozos dancers. We perform at local hospitals, clinics, senior centers, schools, and community events. We strive to bring love, joy, and entertainment to children of our communities and their families. Each and every person that has get chance to dance with, or experience DUCC Dancers, in one way or another, has felt love not only for arts, but also amongst one another. Over the past year, DUCC has slowly been expanding from being a school club with 20 dancers, to an ever-growing community organization with over 100 current and alumni members. I am now working on a new project of homing DUCC as a community Dance team in Jamaica, Queens area by the time I graduate in Juneas well as opening my very own doors to Dance studio by the time I graduate from college. Though I have big dreams and accomplishments, they do come easily. Living with absent father, my mother has truly been my backbone and my biggest supporter. My mother always had many health issues and was always very sick. In January 2014, she fell very ill. Within that time, my grades fell terribly. I was barely passing any classes due to my huge focus on my mother's health. When she returned home, my full attention was on her. She was bedridden and unable to do daily tasks on her own. I stayed close by her side, as doctors were expecting her survival. In her returning home, I had one goal and that was for her to be able to see me graduate from High School and live my dream. I know that in order for that to happen, I need to get my grades up. Slowly but surely, that is what I do, with help of Gateway mentors within my school and advice from my teachers and guidance counselor. I am Purposefully Pretty because though my determination, drive, and creativity are endless, I am not afraid to fall.
