My name is Ivy and I am 14yrs old,I have ADD and very low self confidence.ADD in girls is quite different and not as understood but I can tell you that I don't run around or fidget as most people would expect me to do.Last year I joined an amazing dance school and since I started dancing my self esteem has grown so much, I have even taken part in two shows and loved every minute of it! When I dance I can be anyone I want to, a confident, strong person who can achieve the impossible! I don't need a the latest iPhone or branded clothes all I want is the opportunity to continue DANCING. This last year has been really difficult for my family and despite my dance teacher encouraging me to do even more classes I can't put extra financial pressure on my Mum and Grandmother as I will need new school shoes and uniform in a couple of weeks. Not long ago our car was destroyed so we have to travel by bus to get everywhere which isn't easy or cheap! Dancing has also improved a condition I have affecting my knees, I may never be a ballerina but I will give 100% in every single class and hopefully I will become a successful well rounded individual. My Dance school is amazing but without being able to pay the fees by the end of September I can't enrol and I won't be able to continue dancing. I need to raise I am trying to keep positive but instead of enjoying the summer break I'm starting to dread each day as it gets closer to the start of the new term... PLEASE KEEP ME DANCING!
