phrase that inspires you: b • unafraid
Many times in life we are held back by one person, ourselves. I think it's incredibly important to not miss opportunities because you were too afraid to take them. If you have a goal or dream, b•unafraid to take the necessary steps to get there, even if that means stepping outside of your comfort zone. b•unafraid to be you, to be bold, to know what you want, and mostly b•unafraid to ask those around you for help in achieving your goals.
what inspired you to start dancing?
My mom put me in dance classes at two and I never looked back!
what keeps you motivated?
I think what keeps me motivated is other people. I get really inspired to work hard and grow when I see someone else who is better than me, whether that be dancing or something else in life. Whenever I get inspired, I get this crazy itch to do all I can to improve. I also am really motivated by my family. They have done so much for me over the years and i want nothing more than to make them proud.
