Like many little girls, my first desire was to be a dancer, after I got a Ballerina Barbie for Christmas. (she even twirled when you held her little pink crown and spun her!) Of course, I went to all sorts of dance lessons - ballet, jazz, tap, even ballroom (Latin dance being my specialty, since it's in my blood) but after a while, I changed my mind. I'm not sure what it was, but suddenly, I wanted to be a singer. And boy, did I pursue it! Here I am now, several years later, in a college for performing arts, going for a BA in vocal performance, and previously starred in 6 different operas and musicals, my 7th one opening on campus in May. I plan on making this dream come true, even though so many people say I won't make it since I'm not exactly...the thinnest actress there is, if you catch my drift. (Hey, I'm working on losing it, don't judge!
