About Me

 

Hi Everyone; nice to meet you.

I have competed at the National Level with some First Over All and First in Category Wins. I am a dancer through and through and participated in Garces Memorial High School Cheer as well as their Competitive Dance Team in Bakersfield, CA where I created choreography for the teams.  I also have a strong interest in S.T.E.M (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) and excel in these areas. Attending Utah Valley University starting in the Fall of 2021 after receiving an academic scholarship. Pursuing a Double Major in Dance and BioChemistry.

 

I have studied most styles of dance since the age of 9 including jazz, lyrical, contemporary, tap, acro, hip hop, and ballet.
