WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO TRAIN AS A DANCER?
"My older sister is my true inspiration. I would watch her growing up and was so inspired by how beautiful and talented she was. Watching her dance and perform led to my passions for dance flourishing, I started to fall in love with dance and continue to do so to this day."
WHAT HAS BEEN THE MOST CHALLENING PART OF YOUR TRAINING AND STUDIES?
"The most challenging part of training is learning to accept the bad days. I am a perfectionist and would often struggle battling feelings of failure if I didn't crack something first time. I would struggle with those feelings regularly.
Now I understand that having bad days is part of the learning process, it is important to have bad days because those are the moments that shape us a challenge us to grow. We need the bad days to enable us to appreciate the good ones".
HOW DOES IT FEEL NOW THAT YOU INSPIRE SO MANY OTHERS?"It is the most rewarding and incredible feeling. I have had so many inspirations throughout my life that have pushed and challenged me to be where I am today. It is so overwhelming to think that I now inspire people to follow their passions and dreams the way I did".
