Noviana Chandra on the importance of persistence to get into the creative industries.

You might have heard of this guy called Caleb Brauner. Or not. He was one of the thousands of dancers who auditioned early this year for an American dance series called “So You Think You Can Dance”. No, don’t worry, I’m not going to talk about how amazing of a dancer he is, or why he should have been on the show. Instead, I’m going to make you realise that in each of us, there is a Caleb Brauner. 

"There’s a fighter in each of us that is waiting to be released."

Last year he came to the New Orleans audition, but he was cut from the first round. He tried again this year at the same audition. Still, he didn’t make it pass the first round. He knew that getting through would mean so much for him and his family so he fought for it. Going to another audition in Chicago a couple of days later, he finally made it to the next round.
