Reporter Magen Kritsch recently asked her the following questions:
How did you get involved in dance?
As long as I can remember, I have always danced around the house; and when I was 3 I asked my mom if I could have dance lessons. At the time, my little sister was just born, so I didn’t start dance lessons until I was 4 years old.
What is your favorite type of dance to perform?
Tap. In fact, in addition to my group tap, I have a tap duet with my sister this year for competition. We scored a first place in our first competition two weeks ago.
What are you most excited about this show choir season?
Performing. I absolutely love performing on the stage.
If you could only eat one food for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Pizza or pasta, I love them both.
What book has had an impact on you?
How many pairs of shoes do you own?
Where do you see yourself
in 10 years?
Working somewhere in the medical field, maybe as a doctor or a nurse. I also have had a long-time dream to be a (Radio City) Rockette in New York.
If you won a million dollars, what is the first thing you would buy?
Who would play you in a movie about your life?
What is your morning routine?
Wake up at 6 a.m., eat breakfast, put on makeup and get dressed, prepare my lunch and pack my bookbag, have a mini-dance session with my iPod (if I have time), take my sister to school, arrive at school by 7:05.
What is your favorite aisle in the grocery store?
The ice cream aisle.
