DO YOU HAVE ANY REGRETS? While I try to live with no regrets, if I had to choose something, I would say I wish I had spent more intentional time with my dad before he was diagnosed with Dementia. You never imagine your loved ones being taken from you at an early age and so I have learned to love hard and appreciate every single moment I get to spend with my family.

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 competitive dance team until my sophmore year of high school when I auditioned to be a member of my highschool drill team. I had the honor and priviledge of serving as Captain of my drill team for my Junior and Senior years of high school. In college I auditioned to join the Aggie Dance Team where we got to perform 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 decided to try out to be a dcc because I was not ready to give up my love for dance just yet. I have always admired how the Cowboys and DCC organization have worked to empower women and grow them as individuals, role models and community leaders. I ultimately love 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 also truly believe that DCC is the best of the best. As the saying goes, “often imitated but never equaled”, these ladies truly are classy, and selfless women and I would love the opportunity to not only grow as a dancer but 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 brings. This team is filled with selfless leaders who care for one another so deeply and share a bond that is so special.
PROUDEST ACCOMPLISHMENT: My proudest accomplishment would have to be getting my Aggie Ring. My older sister was also an Aggie and so getting to share such a special tradition with her is something I am so thankful for.
IN 10 YEARS FROM NOW I WILL … I hope to have a family of my own. I would love to be a mother one day and so I hope that I am able to settle down, have some children and buy my own home.
