How long have you been dancing? What is your favorite style of dance?

Since I was three years old. My favorite style would have to be jazz or musical theater because it is the most fun and you get to be funny onstage.

What is your favorite thing about going to Vanderbilt?

I love my major. I think Peabody is wonderful, especially the education professors. I get really excited about making worksheets and making fun Power Point slides. I also love the fro yo at Last Drop.

Why are you going into education?

I've always known I wanted to be a teacher. Ever since I was five years old, I would go home and teach my stuffed animals.

What do you do with Nashville Dolphins?

Nashville Dolphins is an organization where children with special needs ages 2-12 can learn how to swim. It's all volunteer-based and I've been volunteering since last year. I've never been a lifeguard or anything before so that's fun. All the kids are really cute too.

What's your favorite restaurant in Nashville?

Burger Republic
