Esmeralda was a nerdy student who nobody really knew about, she was made fun of because of her looks, and the clothes she wore but nobody knew the real struggle she was going through. Esmeralda grew up thinking that her mother had died which caused her father's drinking problems but that was far from the truth. Her mother abounded her when she was a year old for a man. Her father started drinking causing her godmother to take care of Esmeralda, until he finally decided to get help but when Esmeralda was 16 years old. Being bullied at school was something she had to live with the only escape she had was her godmother's dance studio where she loved to dance. She dance about everything but her favorite dance was tap dancing which she would teach a class to younger students there. One afternoon she walks in to see she had a new student where she would have private practice with her since her family wanted the best teacher to teach their daughter, making Esmeralda the teacher.
