“I plan on using [dance] as part of my platform to promote heart health and stroke awareness…think f.a.s.t.!”

How does dance have a positive impact on your life?

Dance has made a positive impact on me because I was diagnosed with a stutter when I was three years old, and I can express myself without using words, and for me, that feels so empowering. It also gives me confidence and keeps me healthy! I love my studio and the friends I have made through dance!

How do you want to use dance to have a positive influence on your community?

I hope to use dance to make a positive impact on my community, friends, and anyone I come in contact with. I plan on using it as part of my platform to promote Heart Health and Stroke Awareness…Think F.A.S.T.! Dance brings me so much joy, and I know it can bring joy to others, also!
