Hello again Internet. This week, I’d like to introduce you to Phalan. We spent Saturday morning together creating her senior portraits, and it was so much fun. In fact, I was having such a great time making senior pictures of Phalan that I think I made her totally sick of me. But it was worth it, right? Anyway, Phalan agreed to tell us more about her so you wouldn’t have to listen to me yammer on… so here’s a few questions and answers about her, by her. Oh, and some photos by me.
What high school do you attend? I’m a senior at Gainesville High school where I have attended all four years.
How long have you studied ballet? I’ve studied ballet since I was three. My favorite dancing is the kind that really means something to people though. I like contemporary because it looks good if you really feel it and put everything you have into it.
What is your favorite music? My favorite music is the random alternative artist you find on itunes that no one else knows about.
What do you do for fun? I love to go take random adventures with friends where you have a camera and just drive around and record all the crazy moments.
What’s your style? My style revolves around my mood. Sometimes grungy, sometimes cutesy with lots of bows but the shoes are always the key.
What is an accomplishment that you are proud of? Although it might sound a little corny, I consider one of my greatest accomplishments my relationships with people. I tend to be a good listener and I don’t think that’s a quality all people possess.
Assuming you plan to grow up (and it is optional- just look at me), what are you going to be? I’m all about seizing the opportunities. So right now my path is more typical; college, social work degree.. however, I am really considering moving out to New York and auditioning for Broadway shows as a dancer.
And there you have it dear Internet. In case you didn’t notice, this is someone to look out for. Because she’s all modest, she didn’t mention that she’s already a phenomenally accomplished dancer. Remember, you saw her here first.
And thanks Phalan for sharing your special time with me. It was really a lot of fun to work with someone as creative as you are, and I sincerely wish you all kinds of amazing good fortune on your journey through life.
