What does the name YASS: Young Artistic Strong Sisters mean to you?
I think of being powerful, smart and expressive in your own way.
What is the most important thing you’ve learned from being in GLOW in Motion?
I’ve learned about taking leadership and not being afraid to do things and express myself in different ways.
Why is dance important to you?
Dance is important to me because I get to express myself and when I dance, I’m usually doing it around other people and I get to know them while doing something I love.
Why do you think it’s important for girls to be leaders?
People used to underestimate women and now I think that women should do anything they want and express themselves and let everybody know what we can do.
How do you show strength in your performance and in your life?
In my performance, I dance with strength and I dance with confidence and I express all of that in my dance and in my life, I stay strong when things get tough and don’t go my way, or when I feel down.
