CK…you have to know me pretty well before I will tell you the meaning behind this one!
African-American, French, Irish, and Cherokee Indian
Dance is my passion and has been a part of my life in some way, shape, or form ever since I was born. I have trained in ballet, jazz, lyrical, tap, hip-hop and modern with lyrical and hip hop being my favorite genres. In high school I was captain of my dance team and in college my best friend and I created our own dance team that is still going strong!
To be successful in whatever ventures I pursue! I especially want to be a loving mother and wife.
Three words that describe me are
Positive, passionate, and sincere
Quote to live by
“Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy. Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude; It is not self-seeking, nor easily angered. It keeps no record of wrongdoing. It does not delight in evil, But rejoices in the truth. It always protects, trusts, hopes, and preserves. There is nothing love cannot face; There is no limit to its faith, hope, and endurance. In a word, there are three things that last forever: Faith, hope, and love; But the greatest of them all is love.” - 1 Corinthians 13:4-7
