Part 3: Music that Inspires Me

This past year, I had a competition dance to this song, “Unsteady.” It’s a very moving song that I think everyone can relate to. It helps me remember I’m not alone, and when times are tough, I know I have people I can count on. This song also reminds me that everyone has bad days and that it’s okay to need someone to lean on.
