BFA Class of 2025

Where did you train?

I started training at the Grand Prairie Fine Arts Academy, my 6th grade year. Alongside this, I trained at Momentum Dance, in Arlington, Texas beginning my 7th grade year. Each of which I attended until I graduated high school.

What inspires you?

Honestly everything inspires me, from the conversation I had with a friend, to a critique made by a comic on the state of the world. I find it harder not to be inspired because of how much information is at our fingertips; so in some cases I find stillness, and solitude inspiring. Since their nature defies how much of the world continuously runs.

Describe yourself in three words.

Curious, observant, honest.

Tell us a fun fact about you.

My favorite ice cream is mint chocolate chip

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

It is the opportunity of a lifetime to push pass my own expectations of who I could be. More importantly continuing my growth as a human being, so I can also be of value to my community outside of my art.
