I started out as a gymnast, I was in kindergarten and loved to climb, so my mom put me in gymnastics. I really loved it and did it for about 4 years, I was even a state champion, but I started to realise it wasn't what I wanted to do. I wanted to perform and dance, and as soon as I started, I knew it was exactly what I wanted to do for my whole life. Luckily all of my gymnastics skills have really benefited my dancing and flexibility. I started with hip-hop, but my favourite style is contemporary, I also really love ballet, jazz and ballroom.

I have been fortunate to get to work with so many incredible choreographers like Talia Favia, Mark Meismer, Rudy Abreu, Al Blackstone, Tessandra Chavez and in a few days, I am going to work with Chaz Buzan. A major highlight of my dancing career has been on World of Dance with my team, The Rock Company, it was a fantastic experience. I was on SYTYCD the next generation and in a music video for Blake McGrath, playing a young Blake which was such an honour. I am guest starring in a new NBC TV show, I Feel Bad, that was a really cool experience too.

For my future goals, I really don't know what I want to do, possibly Broadway, or commercial dance, I'd like to study dance at college too.

My family is very supportive of me dancing, thankfully, it would be tough to do all of this without their support.

I have never had to deal with being bullied, I'm really thankful for that. My friends at school have always thought it was super cool, they would ask me to do flips and show them my leg, they loved it.
