WHAT INSPIRES YOU? One of my biggest inspirations in life is my mom. She is the most hardworking and selfless woman I know, and I aspire to be just like her.

WHAT IS YOUR DANCING BACKGROUND AND EXPERIENCE? I have grown up dancing every style from tap to jazz to ballet since I was about 3 years old. I competed with a dance competition team until my Sophomore year of high school when I auditioned to be a member of my high school drill team. I had the honor and privilege of serving as Captain of my drill team for my Junior and Senior years of high school. I went on to be a member of the Aggie Dance Team where we performed pom, jazz and hip hop dances at the basketball games, as well as other campus events.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO AUDITION FOR DCC? I am not ready to give up my love for dance just yet, but I also love what the Cowboys organization and the Cheerleaders represent. I admire how the DCC have always worked to empower women, and grow them as graceful role models and community leaders. Ultimately, I want to be a part of an organization that I can pour myself into that will also pour back into me. I have wanted to be a cheerleader since I was a little girl and I truly believe that DCC is the best of the best. As they say, “often imitated, never equaled”. The DCC are classy, well rounded women, and I look forward to the opportunity to grow as a dancer and as a leader.
WHAT DO YOU LIKE MOST ABOUT BEING A PART OF DCC? One of the most amazing parts of this organization is the community it creates. The team is filled with selfless leaders who care for one another and share a special bond.
PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT: My proudest accomplishment would be receiving my Aggie Ring. My older sister is also an Aggie, and getting to share such a special tradition and accomplishment with her is something for which I am so thankful.
IN 10 YEARS FROM NOW I WILL … Have a family of my own. I would love to be a mother one day and hope that I am settled down with someone, own a home and have some children.
