Where did you train?

I trained at Center Stage Dance Studio under the direction of Michele Lee until my senior year of high school, where I attended the University of North Carolina School of the Arts.

What inspires you?

Whenever I’m in need for inspiration, I look to either music or my sister. I feel that music helps me to become a more creative and motivated person, and just listening to a couple songs can put me on the right track for the day. My sister is another influence, as she inspires me to be just as hardworking and focused as she is. I can’t really explain it well in words, but she inspires me in all areas of life, and I know she has helped me become who I am today.

Describe yourself in three words.

Tell us a fun fact about you.

I am obsessed with Lana Del Rey. I love her whole aesthetic and listen to her music for hours on end.

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