How does dance make you feel?
Dancing makes me feel in control of myself, and free at the same time. It gives me the freedom to choose how I want to express with my own body. It reminds me of the strength, gracefulness and wonder of my body.

You’ll hear all sorts of stuff! Rico nasty, flo milli, erykah badu, solange, moonlight Scorpio, fantastic negrito, jill scott, Denzel curry, Britney Spears, doechii, purity ring…

How would you describe your dance style?
Sensual, flowy, intense

Guilty Pleasure?
Jersey shore😭

Who would you fan girl over?
I want nothing more than to be in the same room as Angela Davis.

Favorite quote:
If you are neutral in situations of oppression, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. -Desmond Tutu
