What's something you've accomplished that you're most proud of?

I am most proud of obtaining my bachelor's degree. After getting my cosmetology license, I decided to go to college because I was not comfortable with not having a degree, and I knew I could do so much more with the brains I was blessed with.

What does having confidence mean to you?

Having confidence means owning who you are and knowing that you bring something special to the table. It's keeping your head held high and constantly getting up after getting knocked down.

Physical health as a dancer is always important, but what are things you do to take care of your mental health?

I write in a journal every night. I will write five things I am thankful for and five things I aspire to achieve. After that, I will continue to write about my day and my feelings. Doing this really helped me ease my mind and pinpoint why I feel certain ways.

Do you have any hidden talents?

I actually can cook really well. I also can talk with my mouth closed.

What makes you, uniquely you?

I have very good discipline. When I say I am going to do something, or achieve something, I find a way to do it.

What's something you're grateful for today?

I am grateful for my support system. It is really an amazing feeling to know you are backed up by people that you love. It's nice to know that people want you to succeed and truly are there for you.
