One thing most people would be surprised to learn is... I have a fear of elevators.

Biggest Fear: Elevators

What would be your superpower?: Flying.

Most Embarrassing Moment: I was heading out on a date wearing super high heels so I changed one shoe in the car to drive in. I was so nervous about the big date that I rushed into the restaurant completely forgetting to change the other shoe and didn’t realize until I was leaving! He never called again…

Dream Job: Being a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader

Dream Vacation Destination: Paris

Why did you decide to audition for the DCC?: For years I have wanted to be a Dallas Cowboys Cheerleader. These girls are the best in the world. The values that underpin the organization of giving back to the community are sincerely admirable and something I would love to be apart of. This experience of packing my whole life up in Australia and moving to Dallas to attend the auditions has been the biggest adventure of my life.

What are some of your DCC highlights?: I have met so many wonderful people on my journey so far and love being part of such a passionate and dedicated organization. I have learnt so much already and have enjoyed immersing myself into a new culture and setting up a life here with teammates that I now call my family.

Advice for someone who dreams of becoming a DCC: Follow your heart. Nothing worth achieving comes easy, but if this is what you really want then train hard, give it everything and enjoy the adventure! Nothing is impossible and always smile.
