Biography

What is your favorite pastime? I’ll have to say either traveling or spending time with my friends and family. And obviously dancing!

If you could have lunch with one celebrity, who would it be? Anyone from the cast of Game of Thrones. I’m OBSESSED with that show.

As a child, what did you wish to become when you grew up? There were several things I wanted to be when I was a child but it always came out to being one thing – someone who could make people happy and smile.

Do you speak multiple languages? If so, what languages? Yes! I also speak Spanish

What is the best piece of advice you’ve received? Treat others the way you wish to be treated. 

What made you want to become a Rams Cheerleader? The sense of community I felt from this team. I’ve missed dancing and performing with like-minded individuals who share similar passions as me.
