Xie Xin, 28, a professional modern dancer from Ji'an, Jiangxi province, shares her story behind the pursuit of her dreams.

Xie showed a natural gift for dancing when she was a little girl. She once created a dance and performed it in a sitting room which surprised her mom who was also a dancer.

At 13, she decided to enter an art school despite the fact that her mother was against it as she believed a career in the arts was too difficult.

"I was so determined to enter an art school and I have never considered it an easy path. I kept pushing myself since the day I made my decision," she said.

Finally, she succeeded and was admitted by an art school in Jiangxi province.

Xie believes that modern dance is unique as it encourages creativity and honors distinct personalities. "When you are determined to do something, you have a strong motivation even if others disagree. You don't listen to anyone but yourself," added Xie.
