“I know how it feels,” she said about people having the same predicament.

“Watching this video makes it seem so flawless and beautiful on the outside but people will never know how painful it is to dance on this shoes. How painful it is to make the next step and how painful it is to make it look like that you’re not in pain,” she said.

But life has to go on for Ortega as she “decided to tell myself to keep going no matter how stuck you feel.”

“No matter how bad things are right now. No matter how many days you’ve been crying. No matter how hopeless and depressed you feel. No matter how many days you’ve spent wishing things were different. I promised myself to keep going and to keep shining. Never stop learning because life never stops teaching. Laban mga besh,” she said. EDV
