Use Your Talent to Take You Places

_85651549_dancersHave you ever been so good at something but never thought it would take you places? Think again…

Meet 15-year-old Leroy Mokgatle who came out winning gold at the Genee International Ballet Competition.

In addition to winning gold, he was presented with the Margot Fonteyn Audience Choice Award.

It is hard work Yes!, and The dancers rehearse about 12 hours a day, doing ballet and contemporary dance, as well as normal school work.

The hard work pays off, so endure the sweat and tears and reap the rewards.

At an interview with eNCA he shared some thoughts on his accomplishment. “It’s a very… big honour for me to get a gold medal,” adding that his goal had been to just get to the finals.

“And I did get that, and I got more,” he said modestly after ending on top out of 76 contestants from around the world at the finals hosted by the Royal Academy of Dance in London.

So, believe in yourself.

If you passionate enough and work hard enough you can reach for your dreams.
