Ballerina at the Dance Theatre of Harlem
When you’re performing, how do you feel?
It’s a feeling of excitement, but also nerve-wracking. I’ve been performing ever since I was little, so it is something that I have been accustomed to, but the exhilaration and anticipation before any show never goes away. It’s one of the best feelings ever.
Top 3 most important investments you’ve made in yourself?
1) Friends and family. I am so blessed to have such incredible family and friends in my life whom have helped me achieve my goals and dreams.
2) Learning how to take a vacation and spend time with my family.
3) Taking time to myself - I consider myself very independent and living in NYC can get very busy and chaotic. It’s important to invest time in myself and needs, whether it be taking a hot bath or spending a day exploring a new part of the city.

Favorite space in your home?
My bedroom. I am so lucky to live in a beautiful apartment in the middle of the city with such a breathtaking view. My bedroom has a lot of natural light and my bed is right next to my windows so I feel like I am sleeping literally on a cloud. I love having my own space to go home to after a long day to wind down and be by myself.
What makes you feel confident and strong?
When I am filled with a sense of accomplishment, I feel strong and confident about myself. It doesn’t even have to be an elaborate goal; even a small, simple goal will give me a boost of confidence and joy.
