Huntington Beach, CA

BFA Class of 2019

Where did you train?

Orange County Dance Center.

What inspires you?

I am inspired by other dancers (and artists in general) that display passion toward their work and that of their peers.

Describe yourself in three words.

Determined. Strong. Fun.

Tell us a fun fact about yourself.

I have an irrational fear of hot dogs. Haha!

What does it mean to be a part of USC Kaufman’s inaugural class?

Being part of the inaugural class at USC Kaufman is the greatest honor I could have hoped to receive at this point in my dance career. Now that I have been blessed with this opportunity, to me, it means that I will be serving as an ambassador for a new era of dance across many disciplines.
