Biography

What was your favorite academic subject growing up? Art and English

If you could make one change in the world, what would it be? If I could make one change in the world today, I would eliminate poverty and provide clean water and food for everyone

Who is your biggest fan? My family :)

Do pineapples belong on pizza? Not for me!

What's next on your bucket list? This is not necessarily next on my list but I want to eventually buy my parent's a house and visit all the Seven Wonders of the World.

Most adventurous thing you've ever done in your life? I hiked Machu Picchu and loved it! It was the most exciting and thrilling thing I've ever done and I hope to go back one day.

Describe your dream vacation. My dream vacation would be anywhere with the sun in my eyes and the ocean nearby.

How did you get your start dancing? My aunt decided to put my older sister in dance and, as a form of childcare, put me in dance at the same time. I started dancing at 3 and haven't stopped ever since! I began competing in dance when I was 8 and later joined my high school's dance team and started competing at a national level. When I entered college, I stopped competing and joined a hip hop crew and minored in dance to continue my passion. I took a year off before returning to my roots and auditioning for the Rams Cheer team, which ended up being the best decision I've ever made

Most embarrassing dance memory? When I was 8, I had a dance to the Tina Turner song "Proud Mary" and had to wear a Tina Turner wig. I did not look cute whatsoever!

Your go-to karaoke song? I'm a sucker for any 80s song, honestly! I especially enjoy belting "Wannabe" by Spice Girls and "Dancing Queen" by ABBA

What is your guilty pleasure? Listening/ watching true crime series and belting Broadway showtunes

How would your best friend describe you? Energetic, determined, outgoing and stylish

Coffee or tea? Both! Coffee in the morning, tea before bed.

Favorite thing about Los Angeles? The diversity, community, and obviously the Rams football team. Very proud to be an Angeleno!

Favorite charity or cause that you love to support? Lupus Foundation of America since it hits close to home, the LA Food Bank and Feeding America. I most recently started getting involved with A Place Called Home as well and love what they're doing for the youth in LA.

Advice to your younger self? Don't be afraid to chase after your dreams and always believe in yourself, no matter how hard life gets

What would it mean to you to be a Rams cheerleader? To be a Rams cheerleader would mean the world to me, not only because I get to do what I love but I get to return my love for the Los Angeles community. Being able to go out and meet so many Rams fans not only in LA but all around the world is such a blessing and I have been so fortunate to be able to do this. I always knew dance was my love and passion but being there for my community and helping out whenever I can has been the ultimate gift as a Rams cheerleader. To be able to call myself a Los Angeles Rams Cheerleader and be a part of an organization that values community and family is the greatest blessing of all. I will never stop leading by example and hope to give back to my community all the beauty and wonders it has given me.
