Three feelings to describe yourself when you’re dancing. Free to be me, Happy, and Inspired
In one of our video you do tap: when you learn it and why? I started tap dancing when I first started to dance. It was one of my first styles when I was just 5 years old. It’s such a unique and underrated style but it’s so innovative and should be shared with more of the world. Unfortunately, I don’t tap everyday but it always will be very close to my heart and one of my favorite styles.
You started yoga recently: why and what do you like of this discipline? I started doing yoga to focus on myself more and really just breathe. It keeps my mind healthy and is also very good for my strength and wellness.
Based on your age you are part of the Gen Z: how would you describe your generation? I would describe my generation as innovators, leaders, and the future. We all bring something new to the table and have important messages to share. We are constantly learning everyday but when we have a passion for something, we don’t hold back and we continue to spread positivity and light to the world.
You have 2 million followers on Instagram: what does it mean to you? It’s kind of crazy and amazing that 2 million people from around the world are following me on my journey through dance and my life. I’m so humbled and thankful to be in a generation where I can share my passion and love through social media platforms and connect with people on a different level. I love that I can inspire others and it feels like they are my family because of the love and support that they give.
What’s your biggest dream and why? Honestly, I don’t have a set dream at the moment. I’m taking life day by day and finding who I am. I would say one of my biggest goals that I am trying to reach is to become an actress. I love performing and being able to explore new characters through art. One of my dreams is to just keep on inspiring others and sharing positivity because at the end of the day, that’s what really matters most. Just be yourself, and always spread love.
