How did you get involved with dance?
My best friend when I was 5 years old started dancing. I wanted to do everything she did. She ended up quitting and my mom realized I really liked it so she kept me in it.
What is your proudest moment to date?
Oh that's such a hard question. I wouldn't say it would be one moment. When I take the time to reflect and look back at what I have been able to achieve through dance my proudest moment would be now, realizing how much I've been able to use dance in a positive manner to positively affect others.
If you didn’t have a career in dance, what might you be doing?
I think I would be a counselling psychologist or an event planner.
What might people be surprised to know about you?
I love making crafty and creative gifts for people. That is when I have the time! :)
What is your next project?
I've just received my first BC Arts Council grant, so I'm starting a new personal journey as an artist. I'm really excited to get in the lab and start creating!
