Why did you decide to audition for the DCC?: My favorite quote is what motivated me to audition. “You must do the thing you think you cannot do” I tried out for the DCC because I honestly didn’t think I had a chance. That one negative thought is what pushed me to audition and prove that I could in fact cheer on America’s Team.
What's your most memorable game moment?: It would have to be my first game, I know that’s not a creative answer but there is no better feeling than working hard for an entire summer and finally feeling like it was worth it. I kept looking at the faces and my teammates across the field. It was a moment I could never forget.
What are some of your DCC highlights?: Gamedays at Cowboys Stadium are exhilarating and jam-packed with excitement but my experiences on three USO tours have been my favorite part of the DCC. I have had the opportunity to shake the hands of soldiers all over the world, sit beside and hear the stories of wounded warriors and witness ceremonies honoring some remarkable servicemen. I have grown and learned the true meaning of service and sacrifice because of the Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders and their commitment to our troops.
Advice for someone who dreams of becoming a DCC: You’ll never know if you never try! If you practice hard, work hard and stay focused on your goals eventually your dreams will come true.
