What inspires you?

I am inspired by experiences of my past and how I can learn from those experiences to propel my choices for the future, whether it be in dance or in daily occurrences. The people, dancers, memories, current events and energy that I have come in contact with in my life affect my aspirations and inspiration as a person and dancer.

Tell us a fun fact about you.

I have torn my right ACL twice and sprained my left LCL once. I’m not really the best with knee things.

What does it mean to be a part of USC Kaufman?

From the moment I met other students attending USC Kaufman, I could tell that there was a deep sense of community. The education and family that makes up USC Kaufman are not only here to support you and give you a strong foundation, but to lift you up, question the unknown, appreciate your movement and propel you to be the best you can be as an artist and as a human being.
