3 words to describe yourself:  Cheeky, Determined, Fun

Proudest moment:  Choreographing a sign language dance piece that a group of lovely deaf children performed. Truly inspiring.

Most embarrassing moment:  I attempted to shape my own eyebrows back when I was in school, and ended up shaving half of them off. My mum still make me go to school the following day!

Advice to young dancers:   With dance, you never stop learning, so work hard and be passionate about your talent, never second guess yourself. Inspire, Encourage and Entertain.

What would you be doing if you weren’t a dancer:  I would probably still be within the performing arts industry, probably within musical theatre. I love performing!

Quote you live by:  Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, It’s about learning to dance in the rain. Do what makes you happy.
