I want to be a Magic Dancer because: of the impact I could have on people's lives. The way the fans light up just because they've met you or they look up to you really means the world to me. To know that I could make a positive impact on the community is a wonderful feeling. I love what the Orlando Magic organization represents. And to be part of a team where we all share the same goal, to inspire and make a difference, is something that is truly MAGICal.
Three Words to Describe Me: Fearless, Fun, and Fierce
If I could go anywhere in the world, it would be: any country in Africa because of the deep history and beautiful cultures there. Being that African Dance was the very first style of dance I've ever studied, I would love to see where it all originated from!
If I could be anyone in history it would be: Raven Wilkinson because she was able to break down barriers being the First African American professional dancer in the classical ballet dancing world in the 50s. Despite any hardships and negativity she's faced, she never gave up on her passion to dance and because of that, she made history!
My favorite song to dance to is: 'I Like The Way' by Timaya
