With skill and poise, loose hair and flared sleeves, this attractive and dynamic dancer paves the way for young inspiration and fresh ideas to break out into the open with the confidence that those dreams are valid and will be treated with respect. She splashes out into the world bringing vibrant colour and a strong will which polarises people: some are intimidated and stay away in order to protect themselves and their dreams from being squashed in all the excitement, and others gaze in wonder and dance in the slipstream. This woman is delicately beautiful yet strong and undaunted by the careful and defensive words and cautions of well-meaning onlookers. By listening with balanced perspective she learns to be emotionally intelligent, knowing her own strengths and weaknesses and able to handle herself in times of trial. This is represented by the contrasting colours around her and the way those colours do not smoothly connect in the middle: the different elements of her personality are bridged by her sheer willingness to try, and her ability to express herself regardless of what people might think. She is diligent and able to persevere to achieve her goals which at first glance may seem too immense to be possible. She is an overcomer, determined and free, making her mark on the world and jumping joyfully in the puddles of life.
