About three years in the past, my good friend began taking hip hop classes. Now, she strikes like a Ok-pop idol. Watching her advance from struggling to maintain up with the trainer to possessing the swagger of Justin Bieber, I spotted that the distinction between her success and my defeated childhood fantasy wasn’t my two left toes.
