Can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.

I started dancing at age 3. My sister was on the studio dance team, and I wanted to follow in her footsteps, so I joined as soon as I could. I have been at it ever since and love every minute of it. In the last couple of years, I have also started acting. It has been such a fun adventure so far, and I look forward to doing so much more.

We’re always bombarded by how great it is to pursue your passion, etc – but we’ve spoken with enough people to know that it’s not always easy. Overall, would you say things have been easy for you?

I would say things have been a bit challenging over the last several years. I have worked with several coaches and different styles of teaching. So it has been amazing yet hard at the same time. I think my biggest challenge has been self-motivation during the Covid quarantine and not having my teammates in the same room as me.

What personal limitations if any did you go through in your young career?

I would say being away from the studio for so long limited me training-wise. I had to come up with creative solutions to stay strong technique-wise and flexibility-wise.

Has anybody ever tried to limit you on what you could do? If so how did you fight it?

I have been fortunate not to have that happen yet.

How do you conquer negative talk?

I have always been in the mindset of “glass half full” and “let me prove them wrong.”

What is your favorite quote?

I really like “life is a journey not a race.” - Author Unknown

So, what’s next? Any big plans?

Right now, I am just training hard in both dance and acting. I have some more dance conventions coming up as well as some acting auditions. I can’t wait to see what the future holds!
