If you couldn't get me back
That's what I wish that I could do
A #violindance cover of Figures by @jessiereyez.
Special thanks to @enigmatic_emi at @inceptionsound and Felice Chang for creating this piece with me.

In high school, heavily inspired by people like @lindseystirling and @henryl89, I first thought about making a violin dance video.
I thought about it all the time, but I was so insecure and camera-shy at the time. I didn't feel like I was good enough or talented enough and who would even want to work with me? So I left this project on the back burner for years.
2 years ago, I was really unhappy with myself and made a list of things I wanted to do. This project was at the top of that list and I decided to really give it a shot.
It wasn't easy.
It's been 2 years of failed recordings, choreography attempts, song changes, and video failures. There were so many times when I felt like I would never be good enough. I used to cry after recordings. I’d beat myself up for every misstep. I wanted to give up and, to be honest, I did. I gave up for months at a time in the process.
But, somehow I made it through and now here it is.
I know it’s far from perfect.
I’m not the greatest violinist nor the best dancer, but I’m taking the first step and putting my best foot (in 6 inch heels) forward.
Figures is very special song to me and I've poured a lot of my heart and soul into this.
I hope you enjoy 💕
I’m a notoriously bad texter, but thank you so much to everyone who has taken the time to send me a birthday message.
Thank you to anyone who has checked in on me these last few months. Thank you for your comments, thank you for your messages, thank you for the support. Thank you for believing in me.
I was such a friendless potato growing up and I never thought I’d be a part of such a supportive community one day.
I’m so lucky.
Thank you all for being in my life.
