    I just turned 18 and am more than ready to give it all I got to make it where I want to be in life, I have been watching So You Think you Can Dance? since season 1 and is the show I watch when I want to be inspired. I would love to have the opportunity to audition, but unfortunately there are no auditions in San Francisco. I have been dancing for many years and is my life. I have the dedication, passion and love for dance that can get me very far. My fun, spunky and friendly personality will have the audience absolutely fall in love with me
