What’s your favorite part of game day?
My favorite part of game day would be our performance! Being on the court is a feeling I can't explain, but I'm the happiest when I'm on it! It's the most exhilarating experience I've ever had and I love it!

What’s your biggest fear?
My biggest fear would be injuring myself where I wouldn't be able to dance the rest of my life. I've been dancing since I was 4, so it's been everything to me and I don't know what I would do if that were to happen!

One thing that most people would be surprised to learn about you is…
Most people don't know I'm from a family of 10! I have five brothers and four sisters, six are adopted from different countries!

Dream vacation destination?
My dream vacation destination would have to be Italy! One day I'm hoping to travel the world and learn more about the different cultures but my first stop would be where all of my family is from!

Advice for someone who dreams of becoming a professional NBA dancer?
My advice to any girl that wants to be a NBA dancer is never give up and practice! If you want it bad enough you will push yourself to work for it!

If your life was made into a movie, what actress would you choose for the main role?
My main role actor would have to be Rachel McAdams. She's been my all time favorite actor! She has a happy go lucky personality to her as do I and I love every movie she's ever been in!

How has being a Lady Cat changed you?

Being a Lady Cat has changed me in so many way. Since I've made the team, I've seen myself evolve so much. It has made me want to be more active in the community and over all made me a much more responsible person. It was a blessing to make this team!

What are some things that make you really happy?
Some things that make me really happy would have to be spending time with my friends, family and people I care about. Life is so short so the time I spend with them makes me the happiest.

Dream job?
My dream job would have to be living and working in Disney world! I'm a Disney kid at heart and I would love to wake up everyday and work at the most happiest place on earth!

Favorite time of year?
My favorite time of year would have to be Christmas! I love all of the decorating and Christmas music playing everywhere you go! Also it's the time to spend it with your friends, family, and people you care about most.
