Why I Dance

Simply put, ballet is my passion. No matter what I’m going through in life, good or bad, ballet has always been a point of stability for me. The movement, the studio, and the stage will always be a part of me.

My Secret Talent

I am a really good ping pong player.

Who I Admire

The person I admire most would have to be my dad. He is the hardest working person I know, and no matter the circumstance, he never quits. I am the person I am today because of him.
