WHAT IS YOUR DANCE BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE?  
I have never been professionally trained in Dance but I have been dancing my entire life!  In junior high, I danced with the poms team both years.  Then in high school I joined the majorette team, which brought me to love the field!  Now I am the Vice President of a Dance Team at my university and I am dancing professionally, so I have come a long way!
WHAT ARE SOME PROFESSIONAL OPPORTUNITIES YOU’VE PURSUED THROUGH DANCE?  A fun fact about me is that in 2015 and 2016 I flew out to Dallas, TX and auditioned for the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders!  Unfortunately, I did not make the team but I will be going back next year to pursue my biggest dreams!  Another opportunity that I am extremely thankful for is the Bloomington Edge organization, I am so glad to be doing something that I love at the professional level!
DO YOU HAVE ANY NICKNAMES?  My name is so short I have never wanted to be called a nickname!
MY TEAMMATES DESCRIBE ME AS...Probably quiet. 
WHAT IS ONE THING MOST PEOPLE WOULD BE SURPRISED TO KNOW ABOUT YOU?  I am terrified of butterflies!
IF YOU HAD TO PICK TWO CELEBRITIES TO BE YOUR PARENTS WHO WOULD YOU CHOOSE?  John Legend and Chrissy Teigen
IF YOU COULD HAVE ONE SUPERPOWER, WHAT WOULD IT BE?  Probably telekinesis. 
WHAT IS THE MOST EMBARRASSING SONG ON YOUR IPOD RIGHT NOW?  SO GOOD- Bratz (yes the dolls)
FINISH THIS STATEMENT:  I am most proud of…Being one of the first in my family to attend a university and actually be on track to finish!
WHAT IS YOUR FONDEST CHILDHOOD MEMORY?  Going to Wisconsin Dells every year with my family was always a fun time for me as a child!
WHAT BRINGS A SMILE TO YOUR FACE?  Seeing people happy usually brings a smile to my face.  I love seeing others genuinely excited and happy for any particular reason, that can change how my day is going in a heartbeat!
MOST PRIZED POSSESSION?  My Bratz Dolls collection.  I have been collecting Bratz for almost 10 years and I have never taken any of them out of the box.  (I had separate ones to play with when I was younger)
YOUR PERFECT DAY WOULD BE...Waking up to a wonderful breakfast with tons of fruit, and then sleeping the rest of the day.
MY LIFE IN ONE WORD...Hectic.
BIGGEST ADVENTURE...My biggest adventure so far probably was when my sister and I went to LA for the first time last year!
WHAT WAS YOUR FIRST JOB?  My first job was a cashier at a Super Target!
WHO IS YOUR CELEBRITY CRUSH?  My celebrity crush is definitely Leonardo DiCaprio or Big Sean. 
WHAT IS YOUR GUILTY PLEASURE?  Brownies!!!!
WHAT IS YOUR DREAM VACATION DESTINATION?  My dream vacation destination is South Korea!  I am in love with the Korean culture and food, so to be surrounded by it would be amazing!
FAVORITE THING TO DO IN BLOOMINGTON-NORMAL…I think my favorite thing to do in BLONO is probably ice skating!  I love to skate and having a rink not too far from my campus is a wonderful thing!
WHAT IS YOUR JUNK FOOD WEAKNESS?  Cheetos!
WHO DO YOU ADMIRE THE MOST?  I honestly cannot pick one specific person that I admire, but I do admire different aspects of certain people.  I try to strive to be my personal best, as others do!
WHO IS YOUR ROLE MODEL?  My role model is definitely my mother.  Even though she passed away a few years ago, I have always taken after her and I aspire to be everything like her.  She was an amazing woman!
WHAT IS YOUR PERSONAL AMBITION?  My personal ambition is to eventually become a human rights lawyer fighting for people who deserve the chance to fight for their rights!
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO AUDITION FOR THE EDGE?  One of the biggest goals I have had forever is to become a professional NFL or NBA cheerleader.  With the EDGE being a professional team, I knew that auditioning for and hopefully making this team would help me reach my biggest goals.  Also, I knew that it could give me more dance experience that I did not have growing up!
IF YOU COULD SAY ANYTHING TO THE EDGE FANS, WHAT WOULD YOU SAY?  EDGE FANS!  Thank you for being so loyal to EDGE football and the Edge organization!  Without the fans, we would not be able to do what we do!  Thank you!
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT BEING A PART OF THE EDGE DANCE TEAM?  I love the girls the most!  Each person is different in their own way, but we all click!  I know my teammates are going to be lifelong friends for the long run and I am so excited to dance with them this season!
