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.
