My sister-in-law Niki and her husband Aris are the ones that gave me the initial push to try out for DYAO but then, actually taking a long hard look at myself, I realized that something had to change and quick!! I watched last season and said to myself "I can do that!"
At the medical evaluation, I have to say that I was very surprised to find out that I had high cholesterol!! All the other things that Dr. Geller and I discussed, I already knew were a problem.
To actually be chosen to be on the show was incredible. It was happy, nervous, excited and anxious all rolled into one amazing feeling!!!!!!!!!!!
My main hopes and goals for the show are to learn how to take care of myself so that I can take care of my family that much better, to lose the weight that has kept me down for so long, and to be able to perform again. Dance has been such a big part of my life, so being able to perform again is going to be wonderful!!
Hey, what can I say?? Just being me makes me unique :)
There are two things I can say for sure you will be seeing from me this season. One is hard work—I don't intend to give up for anything. Two, my performances will be fantastic!!! I am and always will be a force to be reckoned with!!
