I started dancing at 3 years old after seeing my older sister Madison in class. I admired how much fun she was having and wanted to be just like her. I love watching her on stage and always hope to have the confident she display when she’s dancing. What’s your favorite style? And why? My favorite style of dance is lyrical because I can emote my feelings in a simple and graceful way. To me, lyrical is so beautiful with technical and smooth moves. It’s like I’m in my own magical world when I do lyrical. Did you have to audition for the Slow Clap music video? If so, can you tell us how it was? Yes, I had to audition for Gwen Stefani’s Slow Clap music video. There were some questions but the one that I find so funny was when I have to answer to the question “Do I have a valentine?” I laughed and told them that “I’m too young to have a Valentine.” And I show them my funny personality by doing some dance moves. What was your favorite thing about working with Gwen Stefani? Gwen Stefani is so beautiful and breathtaking. She looks exactly how she looks on TV. Her fashion sense is such a statement of confidence. Working with Gwen has been so amazing, she is all about “empowerment” and makes all kids feel the support they need to accomplish anything in life. Who’s your favorite dancer? My favorite dancer is Maddie Ziegler from Dance Moms. Maddie is very focus and works hard to accomplish her goals. Her work ethics is amazing and she is an overall a nice, kind and humble person when I got the chance to meet her a few years ago. If you could dance with anyone in the world, who would it be? I would totally love to work with Taylor Swift and Selena Gomez. They are such an inspiration to me! It would be a dream to perform on stage for their tour. Taylor and Selena always made me feel that regardless of their success, they’re humble individuals and inspire everyone to follow their dreams. When did you start modeling? What made you try it out? I love to take pictures. It’s fun and makes me so happy to show my different personalities on camera. Photoshoots are like playing dress-up, it gives me the opportunity to show the many sides of ME! What was your favorite modeling job so far? I have had the honor to do modeling jobs but the one that is my favorite so far is for ABERCROMBIE KIDS. This one is so unique where we not only did photo shoots but we got to dance in small video clips. And the line that I got to model for was about #PlayIsLife!!! How awesome is that! How do you see yourself in 5 years? I love modeling, singing and acting. I would love to be on a tv series maybe a comedy one since I love humor!!!
