Dance/Cheer background & experience before Chiefs

Your personal motto / words to live by
Be yourself, everyone else is taken.

Person you admire and why
My mom is the person I admire because she is so unbelievably strong and doesn’t let hardship get her down.

Favorite charity and why?
My favorite charity is Make-a-Wish because they impact kids’ lives and make their dreams come true even in the toughest times.

Best workshop or audition moment
The best workshop moment occurred during the first workshop when I had the courage to introduce myself to our director, Stephanie Judah. I was blown away on how encouraging and positive he was right out of the gate.

Best moment as a cheerleader to date
The best “moment” as a CC (so far) was when the team was announced and I gained 32 new best friends.

Advice to anyone that wants to audition in the future to be a cheerleader
My advice to anyone who wants to try out to be a CC is to stay positive and encouraging in your own mind. You are the only person that can keep you from trying your best and going for it! The experience is beyond anything else and it won’t be regretted!
