This story is about a girl who loved to sing but was too scared to sing in front of people. One day, she went to school and her teacher said, “Class, we are going to have a talent show.” Then the girl thought, “This is my chance!” So she signed up.

When the day came she got up there and she got so scared and ran off the stage, but her mom ran after her and said, “You can be scared, but you have to try for me.” And so she got up and hugged her mom and said, “Oh, I will for you.” And she sang like it was nothing, and she wasn’t scared anymore.

Tayah Depyper is 12 years old.
