WHO AM I
University Prep, Ellen Thompson
Am I a bird with wings or a yeti with lots of fur?
Am I a cheetah who runs fast or a lion who roars a lot?
Am I a famous dancer?
I am Javone Becton, the one who was born to dance.
Dancing keeps me happy.
Dancing helps me experience things I don’t know.
It helps me have confidence. When people talk about me, I dance.
I want to inspire people to believe that entertaining is “another part of me.”
Yesterday at home Jmarion, my brother, hit me, then I cried for a little bit, then I danced.
