Q: HOW DID YOU BECOME A DANCER? AND WHEN DID YOU START DANCING?
A: I started dancing when I was only 2 years old. My mom put me in classes at a small studio because I had so much energy and was constantly dancing around! I later began more intense training when I turned 7.
Q: What do you enjoy most about being a dancer?
A: What I enjoy most about dancing is the feeling you get while your body is moving in time with music. The expression of my emotions onstage takes me to my happy place—you get to be truly yourself. It is only you and the music.
Q: Do you have hobbies or special interests? If so, what are they and what do you enjoy about them?
A: I love reading, writing, and baking! I’m a huge bookworm, and I love writing poetry. I also enjoy baking healthy recipes for my friends and family.
Q: Do you have a personal mantra or affirmation you swear by? If so, what is it?
A: I always tell myself that to live life well, one must always be humble and kind. Before I go onstage, I always repeat the bible verse, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” It’s my favorite.
