What does dance mean to you? Dance means having fun and trying new things! Before coming to Queen’s, I had zero dance experience. My friend convinced me to try a QDC dance class and safe to say it was the best decision I made in uni!! To me dance represents being open and comfortable with myself, plus being goofy and having fun! It doesn’t bother me if I have no idea what I’m doing. At QDC, I have the time of my life with a bunch of accepting, awesome people.
What is the theme song of your life? “Come and get your love” by Redbone. People say I’m constantly in a good mood and this song always makes me feel happy and chill.
If you were a special award, what would it be called and why? If I were a special award it would be called the giggle award, because I never stop laughing. I will laugh at bad jokes, silly cat videos, stressful situations, and how much chocolate I can consume in one sitting (my record was a bar the size of my forearm). I will literally laugh at anything at any time of the day.
Picture this: you fall on stage and the photographer managed to get a shot of you mid fall. What would you caption the picture? Oh no, here we go again …
