WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO YOUNG KIDS ABOUT BECOMING A CHEERLEADER? Stay motivated and have FUN. Some of my best memories growing up are from my practices, competitions, and traveling with my cheer/dance teams. You will remember moments with your teammates forever. Enjoy them!

BEST ADVICE EVER GIVEN TO ME:  A mentor of mine once told me, “You’re going to hear a lot of no’s, but it only takes one yes.” I’ve kept that sentiment with me through my career and just life in general. I think it’s a great reminder to stay motivated and focused even when the path you envisioned doesn’t necessarily pan out.

GREATEST ACCOMPLISHMENT:  Graduating Magna Cum Laude from The University of Florida. I am also extremely proud to be growing in my professional career, while continuing my love for dance with the Ben-Gals.

FUTURE GOAL(S):  Continue to balance my professional career and being an NFL Cheerleader. I would also love to travel more.
