“I have been a dancer since I was three. My older sister danced so I just followed in her foot steps. Now, I’m going to college for dance. [Majoring in dance is hard] because you have to get into the school and you have to get into the dance program. So, you have double the application process as anyone else.┬áPeople with other art majors have the same [application process]. It’s just a lot harder. I’m doing what I love and not a lot of people do what they love and make money for it. Some people just go for a career because they know it’s going to make them a lot of money. I’ve never been that kind of person. I’ve always put what I love first. I believe that happiness doesn’t always come from money.”
