If you could make one change in the world, what would it be? If I could change one thing in the world it would be for everyone to have a more open mind. An open mind for listening to one another, understanding and accepting each other's differences, and still respecting one another as human beings

Who is your biggest fan? My biggest fan is probably my grandma. She went to every competition and performance while I was growing up and has supported me in so many ways both in and outside of my dance career.

Do pineapples belong on pizza?

Pineapple can absolutely belong on pizza! Personally it also depends on what the other toppings are, but it's definitely a favorite of mine!

What's next on your bucket list? Next on my bucket list is to travel to more away games and watch the Los Angeles Rams play in every NFL stadium!

Most adventurous thing you've ever done in your life? The most adventurous thing I have ever done in my life would have to be deciding to start my own online business so that I could continue to dance and do the things I love! That one choice has opened up so many doors and opportunities for me over the years!

Describe your dream vacation. My dream vacation is anywhere that I can see or experience something new and enjoy amazing views with people I love around me!

How did you get your start dancing? I got my start dancing when I was about 5 years old. My mom put me in Ballet/Tap Combo classes at a studio called Orange County Performing Arts Academy where I competed from the ages of 7-14. From there I competed and trained with my high school song/pom team and college dance team before pursuing a professional dance career path.

Most embarrassing dance memory? My most embarrassing dance memory would probably be when I was around the age of 9 and I fell on stage during my studio's performance of The Nutcracker. After falling, I crab walked backwards to catch up to the formation I needed to be in.

Your go-to karaoke song? My go-to karaoke song is "I Wanna Dance with Somebody (Who Loves Me)" by Whitney Houston.

What is your guilty pleasure? My guilty pleasure is definitely fresh chocolate chip cookies! They are my favorite and I can hardly ever turn them down.

How would your best friend describe you? My best friend would describe me as resilient, loyal, and encouraging.

Coffee or tea? I used to be a huge coffee drinker, but I switched to tea a couple of years ago and I love it so much!

Favorite thing about Los Angeles? My favorite thing about Los Angeles is that there is anything and everything to do and experience! Whether you want to go to the beach, go on a hike, go to a museum, see historic or famous locations, etc.; there is something for everyone!

Favorite charity or cause that you love to support? A cause that I love to support is Domestic Violence Awareness. I am a proud alumna of Alpha Chi Omega and during college was when my heart grew close to this philanthropy

Advice to your younger self?Advice I would give to my younger self would be: You are doing so much better than you think you are. Trust yourself and keep working hard for everything you want, because you can and will accomplish it all one day at a time

What would it mean to you to be a Rams cheerleader?

It would mean the world to me to continue as a Los Angeles Rams Cheerleader. I believe that this team and everything it represents is what the world needs more of right now. A group of people who work hard and come together to make an impact, inspire our communities, and grow as individuals and as a team in so many ways! It is more than dance and even more than football. The opportunities we have each season create ripple effects of positivity for generations of people to come, and that is something I will always be grateful for!
