What is your favorite or most embarrassing college memory so far? For now, dancing in Midnight Madness this year but there are many more favorable memories to be had.

Describe your passion for dance? When did you start dancing? Where have you performed? My passion for dance evolved in my passion for music. I just feel the beat and allow the moves to take over my body. I also really like feeding off the crowd–I enjoy the feeling of the awing of the audience. I love dancing because it allows me to express myself. My mom told me to use dancing as an outlet so I would dance for hours, exerting anger, tears, and pain. My drive for dancing comes from me wanting to get better and looking up to great performers such James Brown, Michael Jackson, Usher, Omarion, and Chris Brown. I want to stand out amongst my peers and I strive to be the best. I started dancing in elementary school, but it really began after I watched two dance movies called Breakin’ and Beat Street in the third grade. I’ve perfromed all over since then, starting with talent shows, then on to dance competitions/battles. I really developed in high school, having several rivaling competitors and multiple performances.

What’s your spirit animal and why? The peacock.  I read the following quote about peacocks, “You are a person who always comes from a place of honor and integrity. You stand up for your beliefs and you live by them. You have a tendency towards flamboyance at times and enjoy showing your true colors to all those around you. You are completely trustworthy, self-confident and are good at discerning the truth in all matters. You are always willing to walk your talk. You revel in being the center of attention.” I feel like I embody these attributes.  

Favorite place in the world: I do not have one yet ha ha

If you could have one super power, what would it be? I couldn’t choose just one so I’ll say superhuman abilities like speed, strength, agility, the ability to heal oneslef, and the ability to fly.

It’s a Saturday night, where can you be found? Hanging out with friends.

What’s your life motto/favorite quote? Excuses are the tools to failure.
