Favorite pole trick? It’s forever changing... at the moment I'm into drops and drop combos.

Pet Peeves? My only pet peeve is when people tell me "thats not how your supposed to do it"... usually I realize that and trying to explore other options. This is not just about dance or movement, but about life, science, love, and living. Don't get me wrong though, I love being a student and learning.

False lashes? Hmmmm... they look great but I can't see right with them on. The one good thing about being hairy and half Pakistani is that I have long natural lashes. Load on the mascara!

Heels or barefoot? I will always and forever love my heels! The taller the better! However, I am super down to get earthy and grubby barefoot.
