Springfield, NJ

BFA Class of 2022

Where did you train?

I trained at Turning Pointe Dance Center and the Union County Vocational Technical Schools (UCVTS) Academy for Performing Arts (APA).

What inspires you?

I am easily inspired. I find inspiration within times of triumph and defeat. Victories are inspiring due to the feeling you get during those times of triumph. Times where I felt defeated are very inspiring too, because they allow me to stay grounded as well as think of ways to better myself and prevent or prepare for feeling that way in the future. They are both learning experiences and I find learning and the idea of growing/change inspiring.

Describe yourself in three words.

Driven. Hard-working. Loving.

Tell us a fun fact about you.

I was on season 15 of So You Think You Can Dance!
