Everyone has a story, what’s yours?
About five years ago I found out that I had major scoliosis and not just one curve but two. It was difficult to dance and as I grew older the pain got worse but I loved it so much I always found a way to fight through it. A few years after that a group I was apart of, The Miami All Stars, made it extremely far on Americas Got Talent Season 6. We made top 10. It was the best experience of my life. Unfortunately, soon after the show we were rehearsing and I fell straight on my back causing me to fracture my L5. When that happened I couldn’t feel anything on the left side of my body. I was told I may never be able to walk again and needed emergency surgery, I was only 17. I was told I needed to have a spinal fusion which consisted of placing 4 screws and 2 rods in my lower back. After my surgery a miracle happened. On day 3 after my surgery I was able to wiggle my toes and it was at that moment that I knew… if I work hard enough and push through all the pain I would be able to walk again. Now, two years later I have made a full recovery. Never take anything in life for granted and never give up on your dreams. Nothing is not possible if you fight for what you love and believe in it with all you heart. It is because of this experience that I have finally found my passion again within my YouTube channel and Blog. I want to be an Inspiration and have the ability to motivate others to be themselves and never let anyone tell them they cant.
Describe your style in a few words.
This is a hard question… hmmm…yep I can’t choose! My style has much diversity. One day I am super edgy, the next I’m dressed all cute and chic, and the day after that can get very classic and casual. Honestly just depends on my mood for that day.
Favorite thing to do on the weekends?
My favorite things to do over the weekend is go to brunch with friends! I love breakfast and just sitting outside with my dog, Lily. It is always good to take time for yourself as well and not get overwhelmed with things. You are your best medicine!
Do what you love and love what you do. No excuse is good enough when it comes to making dreams reality. Just Do It!
