Campaign: To encourage others to reject gender barriers

I enjoy a type of street dance called krumping.

 

I love the energy of the movement and it has changed my life - yet this type of dance is more commonly associated with men.

 

Some girls can be scared to participate because they are worried the activity will make them appear less feminine.

 

I want my generation to break down these gender barriers and forget societal expectations.

 

With my dancing I aim to show that your gender should not determine which hobbies you pursue.

Thank you to Caitriona for agreeing to be interviewed for my broadcast film and for supporting my campaign against gender barriers.
