Dance inspires me to true and honest. It is how I get what i’m feeling out of my mind without saying a single word to anyone, I tell people what i’m feeling through my movement. I get my inspiration from watching professional dancers do what they love to do on stage and showing the audience what the feeling of the piece. I hope one day to be dancing with such amazing people that inspire me.
What really motivates me are my values. What i value is what give me my drive to keep going until I reach my goal. I’m a big believer in self motivation as well, you can do anything you put your mind to and do what ever you want to. If you want to reach for the stars GO FOR IT, do what makes you happy because you love it. My love of dance is the main thing that motivates me, i just want to be able to do it for the rest of my life and have fun doing what i love!
I believe in honesty, to myself and to others. Kindness, to me, is the most important aspect of character. Along with that comes integrity. I feel I cannot be the best I can be unless I stand up for my beliefs and stay true to my character, no matter the cost. Determination is also important in living a passionate, purposeful life. Everyone needs to be determined, to have a goal towards which to strive in order to give their life meaning. Open-mindedness: Not only is it important in everyday life; it is also imperative to think freely while making art. I believe that all people deserve respect, regardless of their character, values, or beliefs. It has always been a goal of mine to be a self-sufficient performer, meaning I want to be able to completely support myself. To train myself for this, I have always tried to be as independent as possible in all aspects of my life. Not only has that shaped me as an artist, as I have developed methods of learning music, lines, etc. on my own, but it has shaped me into an autonomous, self-reliant person in my personal life.
As a person who is very organized, I haven’t noticed anything weird about my work habits. I usually work at a normal pace and get my assignments done on time normally. There are times where I do notice I get stressed out and I do get behind on some assignments and I end up doing everything last minute. I have a good awareness usually with the way I work and I notice when I need to get back on task and get it together. To work better I take breaks when I know i’m getting tired. When I start to close my eyes and I don’t notice it, thats when I know I need a break. I always have candy to get some sugar in my system and wake me up. Thats the best way I get things done!
I was born and raised in San Juan, Puerto Rico. I grew up on the beach surfing and doing everything you can imagine. Then I moved to Atlanta, Georgia after my parents separated. I went all through the rest of elementary school and middle school not knowing what i was gonna do with my life. Then as a freshman in high school i found my calling,my love, passion, I found dance. I started dancing when i was 15 in high school. I haven’t done many things but what counts is that i give 1100% whenever i’m in class or on stage. I love to do what I do and I wont stop doing it unless I have to. I’m a firm believer in doing what you love and makes you happy. This is the one true thing that I do love doing and I know it will keep me happy.
