Self-Identification of a Dancer from the Mirror
From the experience of being a dancer at Hong Kong Disney Land, I had the chance to know myself more and
realized that self-identification was very low at that moment. Fortunately, I was inspired to excavate my ability and
personality from observation those dancers who are from all over the world and work with me. However, I realized that there
was a different me that I haven’t ever known from mirror. Since I had lost myself due to the inferiority complex on figure,
alienation from group and frustration from failure; that’s the reason I choose to define myself against other’s viewpoint.
When I reborn again from this experience, I’ve learned that to accept the imperfect self and describe myself with my way is
important. For that reason, I will use the narrative with personal story, experience, photo, and diary and against the
Existentialism to this research. Through the story sharing to think about the meaning of self-existence and self-identification
to find myself, build self-value and positively impact my moving in the groove.
