I first travelled to LA to compete in the World Championships of Performing Arts in 2012, returning hungry for more opportunities in 2013 and 2014. 2012 was the year that absolutely changed my life forever! I have got to experience what many could only dream of and have made some amazing friends all over the world at the same time. My improvement in dancing, singing, acting and modeling has increased dramatically, not only from what I learned during my time in LA, at the boot camps and from the competition itself, but also from what I have learned from the valuable connections with industry professionals I have made and still keep in touch with to this day. I now look forward to completing my scholarship at Millennium Dance Complex this year all thanks to this experience. WCOPA has opened up many opportunities for my career as a performing artist, teacher and choreographer. The opportunities are endless!
