Where did my little girl go? In front of me was a confident 9 year old performing with all the passion and energy that she could muster. She was up on stage all by herself dancing in front of a room full of strangers with no nerves in sight.
Children always amaze me with their ability to just get on with it - we adults definitely need to take a leaf or two out of their books. And at the end she was jumping around with excitement - a mix of happiness because she had just done something totally awesome and sadness because it was the end of the show.
My little Emilia is definitely a performer at heart. In the last few months I have seen her twice up on stage - in a recent beauty pageant and now this and both times she has never failed to amaze me.
Way to go Emilia!
