My Story

I started dancing when I was 5 years old. Throughout the years, my love for dance grew as I trained in many styles of dance: ballet, tap, jazz, lyrical, hip hop and traditional Chinese Dance. In 2009, I began teaching the Intermediate Chinese dance class at the Boise Modern Chinese School. I also volunteered my time teaching an after-school Chinese dance class to kindergarten-second graders at Gateway Elementary School. Now at SCU, I am working on a dance minor, am an active member of the Hip hop dance team at my university, SCU Hipnotik, and the contemporary dance group, Santa Clara Dance Coalition.

Why do I love it?

Dancing helps me stay fit, happy, and healthy physically, mentally, and emotionally. I'm not a big fan of words, so being able to express my energy and thoughts through movement feels great. I have made some of my best friends through dance and have been offered some incredible opportunities and experiences to learn and to share my passion and joy with others. I am thankful that I have had the opportunity to teach as well, because ultimately, I want to empower others to feel confident and learn to work with the capabilities of their own bodies and creative minds to create great things, because those are some of the most impactful skills that I have gained from dancing.

Study Abroad Fall 2016

I've had the priviledge to do a good amount of traveling around the world. One of my most memorable experiences so far was studying abroad in Edinburgh, Scotland. I took 4 classes at the University of Edinburgh, explored on the weekends in Scotland and through Europe, ate too much late night pizza, enjoyed haggis and climbed Arthur's Seat any chance that I could (once a week at least).
