Interests/Achievements: Dancing and Helping others reach their fitness goals.
My greatest achievement is to grow every day in Dance. Through Dance, I am able to overcome many obstacles. Being able to maintain a healthy lifestyle is my priority. Using Dance as a medium/vector to express my gratitude, deliver the message about music's universal language where both children and adult alike are able to create their own party, feel free, and at the same moment transform their body, mind, and soul. We can all achieve this with the fusion of music and dance. My Zumba classes are my biggest accomplishments. Being able to witness everyone's happiness, having fun while enjoying the class, and to see their testimonies on how Dance transforms their lives. For this reason, "Yo Bailo La Vida" "I Dance Life".
