Why do you dance?
I dance to inspire! I hope to spread a passion for raiseRED throughout the university and the community in order to help the clinic and every child affected by cancer.
Advice for first time dancers?
Stay until the end. You’ll be exhausted, sore, and sweaty but there isn’t a better feeling than seeing the total raised after putting in all of that hard work.
Favorite raiseRED memory?
Turning around after the line dance in 2016 to see the total being raised. We were able to see that all of our fundraising efforts had paid off. It was the moment that I fell in love with the organization, knowing that we were all a part of something much bigger than ourselves
Fun fact about yourself?
I starred in a school musical once. I played Elfis, the lead singer in a Christmas rock n’ roll band. Despite my lack of any sort of musical ability I performed a solo in front of ~500 audience members.
