Sophomore Year 


HC: Why did you want to become Velocity Co-President?

SG: Velocity is my favorite thing I am involved in on campus and it has been since freshman year. I love the group of girls we have this year and we all support each other. 

HC: What is your favorite dance in EXPO?

This year my favorite dance in EXPO is Bed by Nicki Minaj ft. Ariana Grande. It is a hip-hop dance and I’m excited to be able to perform it. My favorite dance that we have done throughout my time on Velocity would have to be last year’s Sound of Silence contemporary dance.

Junior Year 


HC: If you could only do one style of dance, what would it be?

SG: Hip-hop because it is more upbeat/fun to dance to.

HC: Do you have any fun facts about yourself?

SG: I have a black lab named Ember that we picked out after EXPO freshman year! I am attending Bryant next year for my MBA. I love traveling! I went to Iceland in January and I’m going on a cruise to Italy, France, and Spain in June as a graduation gift from my parents.
