Museum of Me

Dancing is my passion and I love it. I did my first dance performance when I was five or six years old. I have done hundreds of shows and performed on many stages. My dancing shoes are significant to me because I dance with them. I have so many memories of them but sadly my feet cannot fit in them anymore. My dancing shoes are pretty and I love them. When I first got them I was jumping and dancing around, that was the best day of my life.

My dog died in 2014. It has been a long time, but I still have his collar. That’s what makes me remember and commemorate all the memories we have had together. For me, he was very important because I love pets, especially dogs. It feels soft, and there is still some fur on it. It smells like dog food and each and every piece of his clothing is important.
