Where did you train?

For the past 5 years, I have trained at a competitive dance studio called Elite Danceworx which has exposed me to various styles of dance such as ballet, contemporary, hip-hop, jazz and tap.

What inspires you?

Something that really inspires me is people around me that do their best to mentor, support and motivate me to be the best I can be and to never stop trying and striving for anything that I want. The people around me inspire me to always dream big and strive for the success I never imagined was possible!

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

Being a part of USC Kaufman has been one of my dreams due to all the opportunities they offer to their students. At Kaufman, it means that I am surrounded by people that love dance just like me, and knowing that when I walk through the doors, I’ll feel like I am a part of one passionate family.
