Rania Mirza, 13
What is the most important thing you’ve learned from being in GLOW in Motion?
I’ve learned that we’re not just here to dance, but it’s like a family and that we can talk to everyone and we can be open with them and also we have to respect everybody and it’s like our own little community almost. We’re not just dancing.
Which of the pieces in the show is your favorite? Why?
My favorite piece is Greatest because I like the song and the way I feel when I’m dancing, just like nothing can stop me.
What do you hope to be when you get older? Why?
I’ve thought about being an artist or a chef or something cool, but now I’m thinking about becoming a writer because you can write down what’s in your brain and it doesn’t even have to be about something real, it can be about anything.
What advice would you give a girl your age who wasn’t feeling confident?
I would say try to embrace who you are and don’t worry about what other people think about you because they don’t know you. You’re the one who knows yourself the best.
If you weren’t part of GLOW in Motion or at Moving in the Spirit, what do you think you would miss the most?
I would miss the people and the spirit of the place, the way it makes you feel safe.
How are you a leader at Moving in the Spirit?
I’m a leader by speaking up in any situation and by being myself.
Why do you think it’s important for girls to be leaders?
It’s important for girls to be leaders because you can just put your voice out there and do something and you can make a difference.
