Three words that describe me: Confident, Driven, Genuine

One thing I can’t live without: Brooklyn, my teacup Yorkie. She is most definitely the cutest puppy around!

Dance background: Danced competitively since age four in various styles including jazz, hip-hop, contemporary, modern, lyrical, and acro/gymnastics. Performed in England and Mexico on behalf of the Nets.

Proudest accomplishment: Dancing in London, England at the O2 Arena. It was an amazing experience to perform in the same place as so many great entertainers.

Future aspirations: I plan to work towards a master’s degree in Secondary and Special Education with hopes of becoming a teacher; all the while, pursuing my love of dance.

Words to live by: Be real, stay true, and keep kind. Life has no rehearsals, just performances.
