The world around me is inspiring. Breathtaking sights, fueling conversations and fascinating people all hold a role in influencing who I am. There is a unique story behind everyone and everything, which opens possibilities to find connections throughout the world.

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

I feel welcomed and moved as a part of USC Kaufman. With regards to the dancing, USC Kaufman supports and listens to every type of artist with an open mind. In addition to the acceptance of every dancer for their artistry, the USC Kaufman family is equally as accepting of each individual as a person. USC Kaufman has built a warm hearted environment that I am grateful for.
