What is your favorite quote from a book, film, or song?
She said these lyrics from Alessia Cara’s song ” Growing Pains” are her favorite quote.
“Starting to look like Ms. Know-it-all
Can’t take her own advice
Can’t find pieces of my peace of mind, I cry
More than I want to admit but I can’t lie to myself, to anyone
‘Cause phoning it in isn’t any fun
Can’t run back to my youth the way I want to
The days my brother was quicker to fool
AM radio, not much to do
Used monsters as an excuse
To lie awake
Now the monsters are the ones that I have to face
No band-aids for the growing pains.”
What is your proudest accomplishment?
She says her proudest moment was being a first-generation student in college and beating all odds that were held against her. While attending an institution full of growth, pain, and getting outside of her comfort zone. Something most people don’t know about her is that dance and music are her life. She says that the only thing is that most people only see and think that there is only an athletic side to her.
