Introduce Yourself/Tell About Yourself: I am 18 years old, I’m from New Braunfels Texas. I am a dancer, I’ve danced for 14 years of my life. Even in my free time, I am most likely dancing or spending time with my family.
What Inspires You Every day? : My family is something that inspires me a lot. They have always been so supportive of my dream and my goals. They encourage me to be myself, but they also push me to work hard everyday. Everyone in my family has invested in my dance career whether that was paying the bills or giving me corrections or choregraphy. They motivate me every day and all I want to do is make them proud.
What is some words of wisdom you live by?:“You cannot change the past”. I tend to dwell on things I could have done, but all we can really do is correct ourselves and move foward. My sister and mom are people who remind me this pretty often when I get to hard on myself.
What is your ultimate goal in life? : My ultimate goal is to succeed in whatever I end up doing. I want to get out of my comfort zone and allow myself to accomplish my dreams.
How have you been during the pandemic and how has it affected you? : The pandemic has given me an opportunity to love who I am. Being apart from people allowed me to stop comparing myself to others and to find out who I am. I have taken this time to learn more tricks and new languages. The pandemic has genuinely been a learning experience for me in many aspects.
What is a positive message you would like to give others? : It is never to late to learn. Success will always take time and time always passes. Everyday we have a chance to improve ourselves, so never give up on your dream.
What questions would you like to ask others?:What is your purpose in life? What motivates you to accomplish that purpose?
