Since then she has made great progress in her profession, signing her first entertainment contract with Six Flags over Texas theme park. She graduated from Booker T. Washington Performing Arts High School in 2012 and moved to Los Angeles shortly after to pursue her dreams and take her career to the next level. She has faced many hardships and challenges throughout her career, mainly within her own self. She admits, “I had to overcome self-doubt and feeling like I was not pretty or talented enough.” She now her success to her ability to remain positive in all situations. “What make me unique is my ability to look at life through a positive filter. To express myself however I feel and not be limited or boxed in by what others think I should do or be. Being unique is being able to paint the canvas of life with the many colors of one’s self.” In the next few years she plans to take her career to even greater heights and land a leading movie role, open a dance studio, and start her own agency. She urges anyone who is interested in breaking into the industry to “Be true to yourself. Don’t be afraid to try new things. Be flexible and remember that life is always about feeling the space you’re in whether on or off the stage.” She received a lot of her inspiration and confidence from her role model, the bold entertainer, Tina Turner.
