HI, I'M GRACE FURST!

I hold many different interests, skills, and passions that make me a unique and dynamic individual. Whether I'm in the classroom, dance studio, or the office, I give 100% of my effort to learn, improve, and achieve. The most important life lesson that dance has taught me is to never give up and don't underestimate what you can accomplish!
