How do you define empowered? Empowered means being strong and confident in everything you do. You are in complete control of your own life and the decisions you make.

Where do you see yourself in five years? I hope to be graduated from college and continue dancing for the MVC!

Where are you in your family line up? I am the youngest of four girls!

What was your favorite subject in school? My favorite subject in school is definitely anatomy. I love learning about how the body is interconnected and the location and function of each part. I am best at memorization when it comes to learning!

Do you have any pets? A fourteen year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel named Lucky.

What is your favorite workout tip? Listen to your body!

My best beauty secret is: Wash your face with the Expressions MD facial cleanser morning and night!

Why did you decide to audition to become an MVC? Watching my sister go through the process and become an MVC inspired me. From that point on, I knew this was going to be my #1 goal to strive for once I graduated high school.

What are you most looking forward to your Rookie Year? I am most looking forward to impacting people’s lives with my smile, positive energy, and dancing! Being an MVC is such an honor because so many people look up to you and aspire to be like you, so I cannot wait to experience that first hand both at appearances and on game day.

Most valued lesson learned as an MVC: Make the most out of every moment and value every opportunity you are given.
