How did you feel during your first Lady Cats performance as a rookie?
I can't even explain how nervous I was! It was my first NBA game I had ever been too, and I was on the court in the middle of everyone! It was such an incredible experience performing in front of all of those people! I literally thought my heart was going to beat out of my chest.

The first dance costume I can remember is my pink Hawaiian tap outfit! I loved it because we got pink, sparkly tap shoes!

Never give up! Follow your dreams and remember that with hard work, dedication, and determination, you can do anything! Dream big!
What is your favorite part of game day?
My favorite part of game day is doing our prayer circle before player intros! A lot of times we are rushing around with court practices, appearances, and outfit changes, so it's a nice time where we all get in a circle, hold hands, and thank the Lord for his blessings.

Spending quality time with friends and family. Time is something you can never get back and I think spending time with the people you love is the best gift anyone can give!
