Best career advice you have ever received?
I am grateful to have such a supportive family. They told me to never give up on what I am passionate about and that although it won’t be easy, it will always be worth working towards.
If you were not a dancer what would you be doing?
If I wasn’t a dancer I would want to be in musical theatre. Singing and acting have been a passion of mine and I would want to continue to perform.
What do you like to do on the weekend?
I love to spend time with friends and explore San Antonio. It is such a unique city with so much to do and see. I’ve really enjoyed living here and there is still so much more I want to experience!
