Emily Longhofer and Hannah Beck, students from Mill Valley High School who are involved with CYT Kansas City, were featured in their school newspaper today- also published at MVNEWS.org.
Both girls chat about the pros and cons of being involved with CYT, as well as the opportunities that have gone their way:
“I don’t have any spare time. It’s hard to manage school and CYT,” Longhofer said. “It definitely affects school, but it’s 100 percent worth it. It helps me grow as a person….you have to make a lot of sacrifices for this. It means I can’t be involved in school or have a job. This is my life.”
“We both take dance classes, so it’s more time we spend there, but we love it,” Beck said. “I saw a show when I was in fourth grade. I saw kids up there that were my age and I got really interested into it.”
“I’ve met so many people and had so much fun, I really want to be a dance teacher and hope I can choreograph shows for CYT one day,” Longhofer said. “Our faith really keeps us going, the people there are amazing and we know we have Jesus.”
“We’ve gotten the chance to go dance in NYC, go to San Diego and hopefully soon we will be able to meet CYT people from around the nation,” Beck said. “I love the impact we can have on other people,” Beck said. “I get to serve the Lord and do I what I love. It’s awesome.”
