Phoebe was one of several Girl Guides / Scouts who shared joy in this beautiful garden. To share joy with brilliant young girls like Phoebe gives me great pleasure. I wish I had more time to get to know each of them, but luckily we get to learn a little about each person through their answers here. Love this jump Phoebe!

Get to know a little about what gives Phoebe joy:
Q: What inspires you to jump for joy?
When something exciting happens, like when I perform in my dance recitals.

Q: How was your experience doing the jumping photos?
I felt nervous before – I worried they wouldn’t turn out well. I was excited after I saw the result.

Q: How do you describe the feeling of joy?
Joy feels thrilling. It makes me want to try new things, like learn new dances and go to school.

Q: What is your greatest passion in life?
Dancing, because it’s fun. I like learning new steps. (choreography)

Q: How do you feel about being part of a community project that promotes joy?
I felt cheerful because I like getting involved in projects.

Q: If you could do anything in the world, what would it be?
I would have magical wings that could take me anywhere I want.

Q: What are you working on or creating?
I am practicing my choreography for my spring dance recital.

Q: Mini bio or something special you want to share.
I am Phoebe Etoile, and that means bright star in Greek and French.

Thank you Phoebe for sharing your beautiful joy with us!
