I strongly believe in living your life to the fullest and putting your happiness before anything else, including money. When I’m lying on my death bed, I want to look back upon my life and laugh and smile from wonderful memories of being with people I love and doing what I love. I refuse to look back and feel regret because all I did was search for as much money as I could. With that being said, I am determined to become a professional performer as a living because there is nothing I love more than moving an audience and sharing myself with other people through song, dance, and theatre. Currently, I am enrolled at Lindenwood University and am getting a BFA degree in Musical Theatre. I plan on being in all productions at school as well as auditioning for professional opportunities in and around St. Louis while working towards my degree. Once I graduate, I plan on moving to New York or Los Angeles so I can chase my dreams and try to perform on cruise ships, touring shows, dance companies, the Rockettes, music videos, Broadway and off-broadway theatre, television and movies, and possibly even going solo in the music industry. I want to learn from my successors and grow in my art as much as I can, and create new things and share my art to the whole world, and bring brand new things to the entertainment world. This dream of mine will most definitely be my reality.
