For as long as I can remember, I have been equal parts analytical and creative. My passion for the performing arts was undeniable, but I was drawn to the rigor of mathematics and my other academics from a young age. Now, having completed my undergraduate career with a double major in Mathematics and Ballet, these two components of my identity are incorporated more than ever before.
In my academic experience, a mathematical brain is only as strong as the creative mind behind it, and the most profound art is that which acknowledges the structure and logic that it either embraces or defies by choice. Whether I am exploring mathematics myself or teaching others, I still thoroughly enjoy solving puzzles that demand both logic and artistry. And dance, the physical manifestation of abstract expressions, has intrinsic rhythm and geometry that stimulates my detail-oriented brain, which compels me to create as both a performer and a choreographer.
I believe that I would not be personally or professionally fulfilled without the rigorous training I have had in both of these disciplines. They have worked in tandem to make me the thinker, teacher, and performer that I am today.
