Goals in life

To be successful in every aspect of my life.

Someone you admire

I truly admire my coach, Steph. She is a woman that cares so much with her heart, but also believes in the best of everyone she meets and pushes them to reach what she sees in them. She knows half of this city, but still can tell you every person’s name, where they are from, and their life story because she invests in everyone that she meets because she has a big enough heart to hold all of us in it. And I know that because she touched my life, I am a better person because of her.

Favorite color and why

Turquoise because it makes me feel like there’s always a little piece of paradise around.

What’s on your bucket list?

Seeing a waterfall, traveling to all 50 states, going on a safari, snorkeling/ seeing a coral reef, seeing the northern lights

Favorite Charity & why

I love the Humane Society because I believe animals are just like people, and they need someone to look out for them too.

Why did you decide to audition to be a CC?

I auditioned to be a CC because I wanted to be a part of an organization that represented Kansas City in the best light and be an example of the amazing people that truly love and respect this city.

Favorite CC Appearance to date

My favorite appearance to this day would have to be the Team Smile event at Arrowhead. The kids were so sweet and really just wanted to have fun. Getting to dance around with them and listen to them warmed my heart because it was the purest interactions anyone could’ve imagined. To think that just dancing and talking with them made their days made me feel like one of the luckiest people in the world. I don’t think I’ve ever had more fun on an appearance. But more importantly, I don’t think I’ve ever had a more humbling moment than that one with those kids.

Best Moment as a CC to date

I think my best moment as a CC to date has been getting to see how much of a positive influence we could have on young girls in this world. Having Jr. CC’s gives us so much time to bond with girls in our community, but also time to be a good example of a role model in this world and to me that is the greatest feeling.
