“I started skateboarding and dancing as a way to escape the reality that surrounded me. I spend my time now working and dancing with the M-Town Image & Dance Group. When I first started, I set out to be the greatest dancer in the world, but they told me, ‘There’s no award for that. You’re in a group now. How about you aim to be part of the best dance group in the world.’ They helped me understand that I didn’t have to be better than everybody else. That’s where I learned how to cooperate, get along with people, and work with a group.
"I live life walking in a straight line. Sure, I can look both ways, but there's only one door of opportunity and it's not closed. It's easy to make a mess, but if you're willing to do something with the mess you've made, the door is still open."
