Meet Sashira Camacho! She will be your dance columnist for this year. Though she is a returning student, it is her first year as a writer for clay.
She lives in Germany with her two siblings and Maltese puppy named Nunny. She has also lived in the U.S. and Korea, making her an experienced traveler.
Sashira has a passion for dancing. For the past five years she has continued to pursue that love. She enjoys ballet and modern dance. When she’s not dancing, Sashira finds herself eating, sleeping, and completing piles of homework. In school, she excels at math and enjoys science. This year she will be taking geometry honors, English 3 Lit survey honors, Pre-AP biology honors, Bible survey, and government/economics.
She aspires to become a registered nurse or OBGYN as well as dance with Christian ballet company Ballet Magnificat. In her spare moments, she likes to read a good thriller novel or history of World War II.
If she could paint one masterpiece in her life, Sashira would create a picture of the alps of Garmisch in Germany during springtime. Not only is that her favorite season, but also, the handprint of the creator is so evident in these mountains, she can’t help feeling closer to God.
The one place in the world Sashira wants to see the most is Machu Picchu in Peru. These ancient ruins of an Inca village hold much mystery and historical interest to her.
Blue is her favorite color. She likes this hue because it is calming and reminds her of the water.
If she could have a super power, Sashira would want to fly. And that is simply because flying is the most convenient way of reaching a Chick-fil-A
Sashira’s favorite Bible verse is 1 Tim. 4:12 which says, “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speck, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.” The reason she loves this verse is because of its encouragement not to be the world’s typical description of a teenager but to be a young follower of Christ and a light to the Gospel.
Well, that’s your fun, out-going dance columnist for this year.
