Advice to other dancers…
Work hard and train… Keep loving the process! Stay humble and kind and surround yourself with people that are positive and happy. Try to keep balance in your life… focus on dance, school, family and friends! Do things you love and make you smile. Do not get caught up on what everyone else is doing… find your own path.
