More About Me

I've never had the opportunity to dance before entering college (not counting the "dancing in front of the bathroom mirror" dancing), but when my older sister told me about the Ballroom Foundations I class, I had to give it a shot. After watching UGA's Ballroom Magic 2013, I fell head over heels in love with ballroom and decided I had to try out. Even though I was terrified to jump into it as a freshman, it was easily one of the best decisions I've made since being at UGA. It's given me the confidence that I didn't even know I was missing, and I couldn't be more grateful. When I'm not out on the dance floor, you can find me occasionally practicing the flute, reading a book, binge-watching Netflix, finally learning how to crochet, looking for puns in every aspect of life, finding new ways to lovingly harass my sisters, making the perfect pancake, or busting a move in front of the mirror (yes that still happens).
