Why I Dance
I have been dancing since I was three years old. It has always played a huge role in my life. It has been an emotional outlet for me, and I believe it’s what has helped me process and grow through the loss of my father.
My Secret Talent
My secret talent is that I am a pet whisperer. We have had 45 chickens, three horses, a bearded dragon, lizards, rats, teddy bear hamsters, cats (seven at one time), 6 dogs (three now), two parrots, and 22 fish!
Who I Admire
The person I admire the most is my mom. She is a single mom and she works hard to be able to put me through dance and my brother through his sports. Dance is very expensive, and I’m so proud of her for working two jobs to get me to where I am today. She has taken me to LA multiple times for my auditions for America’s Got Talent, as well as several other audition tours. I am so happy to call her my mom.
