Sister Act: Kelsey and Julia
Kelsey and Julia have been best friends for 9 years. They first met each other in a dance class and continue to dance together to this day. During classes and everywhere in between, they inspire each other to work harder and to become better dancers and friends.
Miss Amazing: How did you meet?
Kelsey: Julia and I met about 9 years ago at the YMCA taking dance classes.
MA: Fun! What do you like to do together?
Julia: We love to do so much with each other from dancing, to going for ice cream, and our all-time favorite, traveling to Disney World together.
Kelsey: We have gone to Disney five times with our moms and have the best time! We also love to act silly and to dance to the Frozen song "Love is an Open Door". I also love being on the dance competition team with Julia. She always does my hair and makeup and puts up with my moaning and complaining since I don't like my hair being touched. She knows exactly how to distract me while doing my hair. Julia also was my date for my high school homecoming dance this year!
MA: What are your favorite qualities within each other?
Julia: One of my most favorite things about Kelsey is that she never seems to have a frown on her face. I love that she finds joy in everything she does. I also love the enthusiasm and hard work that Kelsey puts into just about everything she does.
Kelsey: I love Julia's bubbly personality, her loving ways and patience with me. I love how she knows how to read me like a book.
MA: How do you inspire each other?
Kelsey: Julia inspires me to work hard (especially at dance classes). I see how wonderful she is as a dancer and I want to be just like her.
Julia: There are so many bad things that happen in today’s world and so many people that have lost the sense of finding joy in the little things. But Kelsey inspires me to always find joy in the little things and to remember the small moments because they make for the best memories.
MA: What have you learned from each other?
Julia: I have learned so many valuable things from my friendship with Kelsey. I have learned that when you’re having a bad day a good laugh or silly text can change it all around. I have also learned that no matter how hard something is hard work and pushing to grow pays off in the long run.
Kelsey: Julia has taught me to work hard, be kind and, as our favorite song from Frozen says, "love is an open door"! Keep your heart open to love unconditionally no matter what issue someone might have and never shut the door on loving your family and friends.
MA: There's nothing like a Frozen song to bring two friends together! How has your friendship withstood the test of time?
Julia: I would say that my friendship with Kelsey has withstood time extremely well. In the eight or nine years that I have gotten to know this lovely young lady, I have learned and experienced things that I will use forever.
Kelsey: It's true! Our friendship has always been strong through our years together, and I look forward to many many many more years with my best friend forever.
