Hometown: Winter Park, Fla.

Year: Sophomore

Years on Team: 2nd

Reason for attending FSU:  I fell in love with the FSU campus and tradition of the seminoles during a visit sophomore year of high school. Wanting to go away from my hometown for school, it was the perfect distance and best home away from home.

Why you chose to Dance at FSU: I wasn’t ready to be done with dance after high school, so it was the best way to have the best of both worlds: carry on my dancing, and become a big part of Florida State University. Not to mention becoming a part of the most talented dance team around!

Favorite memory with the Spirit Group: My favorite memory so far with Golden Girls would have to be traveling to the 2010 NCAA tournament in Buffalo, NY. It was a blast supporting our basketball team during the game, along with all the fun activities we got to do prior: skiing, seeing Niagara Falls, and of course dining where the Buffalo wing was originally invented!

Favorite hobby: Watching movies and shopping

Favorite quote: “If you don’t go after what you want, you’ll never have it. If you don’t ask, the answer is always no. If you don’t step forward, you’re always in the same place” -Nora Roberts
