Favorite subject: I would consider English my favorite academic subject. Instead of a lecture-styled class, we have group discussions where we all learn from each other, student and teacher alike. We delve deeply into the meanings behind the literature we study. Modern dance is my other favorite subject of study and application. With a balance between technical dancing and free expression, we get the opportunity to experiment with all the different movements our bodies can do.
