Describe your senior year in 3 words.

Rewarding, Fulfilling, Inspiring

What advice would you give to next year's freshman class?

Don't be afraid to step outside of your comfort zone and meet new people!

For students who are new to the OKC area, what is one place they should visit or restaurant they should try?

The Mule!

What will you miss most about OCU?

I will miss the long-lasting relationships OCU has given me!

What professor or staff member stands out from your time here, and why?

A professor that stands out from my time here is one of my jazz professors, Tiffany van der Merwe. Tiffany has inspired me to not only be a better dancer but a better person. She has presented me with opportunities that have shaped who I am as an artist, and I am forever grateful for her presence in my life!

What was your most memorable moment from this school year?

Participating in the American Spirit Dance Company's Broadway Revue. During this show, I was able to share the stage, one last time, with dancers I have grown with for the past four years.

What is one thing you'd like to say to your family and/or friends on your graduation day?

I am so grateful for the support I have received from my family and friends over the past four years. I would like to say thank you for always having my back and pushing me to be the best version of myself!

What are your plans after graduation?

After graduation I will travel to New York City to attend the Rockettes Summer Intensive Invitational Week. I was granted a scholarship to attend this amazing intensive which will bring me one step closer to performing as a Rockette at Radio City!
