Panda is a student from the Wharton school at the University of Pennsylvania. Although she is studying in the top business school in the country, she is not happy about her life. When she was a child, her dream was to become a dancer in the future.  She started to learn about dancing since childhood, but unfortunately she didn’t become a professional dancer because of her family. Just like any other ordinary girl from an Asian middle class family, her parents were hoping for her to get into a top business school, and make more money in the future. Simple and straight forward, and also cruel for her at the same time. She did a good job, successfully got into the best school, but she can never feel the true happiness she seeks besides when she’s dancing. Her college life begins, and she doesn’t want to give up what she loves. She joined the universities dance club immediately. However, top schools always give students the heaviest workload and the most pressure. She can hardly spend time on dancing and therefore she feels helpless. She struggled on making the decisions to  almost a collapse. Finally one day, she walked straight to the dancing studio with no hesitation. Nothing else was important at that moment. She just wanted to hide, and there is no better place than the dance studio. Euphoria came soon after she put on her makeup and dancewear. Sha laughed happily and relaxed, just like a child.
