Since, it was my childhood dream to take part in this competition, I would try to be more creative with my moves and practice consistently, so that I could express not only, my deep love for dancing, but my dedication to win the show. I staunchly reckon, with my creative ability, I would be able to contribute something significant to the show as well. Furthermore, I would be able to make a name for myself because of this competition.
