“I am feeling like everything happens for a reason and that what is meant for me won’t pass me by. I am focusing on myself, staying in my lane. I am committed to my journey and no one else’s. How do I balance my energy between helping others and caring for myself (and that means caring for myself in all ways – physically, mentally, emotionally)? Everything is going to be ok.”

To my Mom, Dad, and two sisters: thank you for always being there every step of the way with endless love and support throughout my dance journey. I truly would not be where I am today without you. To my wonderful BFA faculty advisor, Jennifer Kayle: thank you so much for supporting me, challenging me, inspiring me, and allowing me to grow so much throughout the process of creating this work. To the entire dance faculty: thank you for supporting my growth these past four years and for challenging me and believing in me. I will forever cherish the inspiration and passion you have all shared with me. To my fellow BFA seniors, I could not have asked for a better group to share the last four years with; I am so grateful for the memories, laughs, and every moment in between. So much love for you all. We did it!
