What was your favorite academic subject growing up? My favorite academic subject growing up was science because I was always curious to learn about the world around me!

If you could make one change in the world, what would it be? If I could make one change in the world it would be for everyone to be treated equally and fairly regardless of race, gender, sexual preference, or their beliefs in order to unite society and stop the discriminations people are still facing.

Who is your biggest fan? My biggest fan is my Mom! She is always there cheering me on and constantly pushing me to be better than I was yesterday in order to chase my dreams!

Do pineapples belong on pizza? Yes, pineapple does belong on pizza. Hawaiian pizza is my favorite.

What's next on your bucket list? Next up on my bucket list is to see the Northern Lights!

Most adventurous thing you've ever done in your life? The most adventurous thing I have ever done in my life is that I moved away from home at the age of 16 to pursue a career as a professional ballet dancer.

Describe your dream vacation. My dream vacation would be to travel to Italy and explore the Amalfi Coast visiting all the beautiful coastal cities and eating lots of delicious fresh pasta and seafood!

How did you get your start dancing? I started dancing at the young age of 2 ½ by taking ballet and tap lessons at my preschool.

Most embarrassing dance memory? My most embarrassing dance memory was at my very first dance recital at the age of 3, when the curtain opened I got so scared by the audience I ran straight off the stage into the wings as the music started and I refused to go back on the stage. Luckily, I got the hang of it by the following year and was no longer scared of being on stage and now I absolutely love it!

Your go-to karaoke song? My go-to karaoke song is I Wanna Dance with Somebody by Whitney Houston!

What is your guilty pleasure? My guilty pleasure is baking! I absolutely love baking desserts from homemade cakes to cookies to cheesecakes, I am always finding new recipes of something yummy to whip up.

How would your best friend describe you? I believe that my best friend would describe me as loyal, kind-hearted, hardworking and witty!

Coffee or tea? Definitely coffee! But I love the occasional hot cup of tea to get cozy before bed time.

Favorite thing about Los Angeles? My favorite thing about Los Angeles is all the different variety of foods from all over the world we have! I love always having something delicious and new to try.

Favorite charity or cause that you love to support? I love working with humane societies in my local area and plan to foster cats and dogs that need a loving nurturing temporary home while waiting to be adopted by their perfect family.

Advice to your younger self? The advice I would give to my younger self is to never be afraid to be yourself! People always want to see the true authentic version of you and you can't allow the fear of judgment or non-acceptance change who you are.

What would it mean to you to be a Rams cheerleader? Being a Rams Cheerleader the last 4 years has been the most life changing and rewarding experience! Getting to live out one of my life passions of dancing while also giving back to the Los Angeles community and connecting with fans on and off the field makes being a Rams Cheerleader a truly special opportunity. Being an ambassador and role model for kids to look up to is something that continues to push me to be better each and every day, showing that with dedication, perseverance, and heart your dreams truly can come true!
