I love University of Miami but I almost went to: Nowhere else, actually. I knew this was the only school I wanted to go to, so it was the only university I applied to. A little bold and dumb, but it worked out.
My favorite class is: Advertising Copywriting and Concept.
Movies I can't live without: I love watching any movie, but the few that come to mind are Happy Gilmore, Big Daddy, Billy Madison, The Holiday, Mean Girls & Big Fish.
Music I can't live without: All of it. After all, I am a dancer. What would I do without music?
TV shows I can't live without: Sex and the City, Grey's Anatomy, The Starter Wife, So You Think You Can Dance, & Friends.
The most embarrassing thing that's ever happened to me during a game is: During one of the games at the ACC Tournament this year I almost tackled Lance Hurdle on my way off the court. We had just finished a timeout performance and I was not looking in the direction I was headed. At the last second, I noticed that I was going to run right in to him, so I was able to make the impact a little less destructive.
My favorite sport is: Footballm especially at the collegiate level.
My favorite professional sports teams are: I don't really follow any particular team. I just watch all the "big games." However, I do like watching games at the professional level because the athleticism of the players is ridiculous.
My one guilty pleasure is: T.G.I Friday's Brownie Obsession.
My best physical feature: My smile.
Strange and unusual fact about me: I am terrified of needles. I hate getting shots or giving blood. I still freak out about it.
My friends would be surprised to know that I: Used to have serious food allergies.
