When Gigi Crouch was 13, she was diagnosed with scoliosis.
Specifically, Gigi had a "30-degree curve in her thoracic spine, and a 20-degree curve in her lumbar," according to People.com.
Even though she had to wear a brace for almost 20 hours a day, as she stated on Instagram, she stayed positive. Eventually, she was able to bring that amount of time down to 12 hours per day. Then to nighttime wear only. Today she is brace free, though she does physical therapy.
Her teenage years were a bit difficult.
Gigi now helps other people in a similar position, saying, "I realized that I could help when I started getting comments that I 'inspired them' and made them 'realize they aren't alone' in this."
Now Gigi continues to showcase her supreme talent, proving that nothing can stop you from chasing your passion and dreams.
She is also a student at the Pacific Northwest Ballet school in the Professional Division program.
