Where did you train?

Starting at age two, I grew up training at Inspire School of Dance, a competitive dance studio in Naperville, Illinois. Here I was exposed to many different styles of dancing and was able to make long-lasting connections in the competition world. 

What inspires you?

What inspires me is having the ability to inspire others. My peers and the community surrounding me fuels my artistic and humanistic growth, and being able to share that with others in return is something so special and empowering. Art in all of its forms inspires me as well!
