What inspired you to keep dancing during the COVID-19 lockdown?

My family kept me inspired and also realizing that we are nothing without each other in this world during a situation like that.

What do you like to do for fun in San Francisco?

I really like to go to parks and hang out with friends.

If you weren’t a dancer, what would your job be?

When I was younger before ballet, I thought about being an engineer.

What are you the most proud of?

I'm proud that I didn't stop when the situation got tough, and I fought until the end to get where I am today.

What are you looking forward to in the 2023 Season?

I'm excited to work a lot with some ballets and dance styles that maybe will be new to me, enjoy every moment and of course keep learning and growing a lot.
