Being often the only Afro-Asian woman meant that I had to work hard to make sure that if I stood out, it was for the right reasons.
In my teens, I joined competitive synchronized swimming and cheerleading teams. These two sports enabled me to establish strong foundations in dance, flexibility, flow, choreography and strength. When I attended my first pole class, I fell in love right away. I remember it being super hard, but there was something about it that made me want to get really good at it.
I was extremely inspired by my first instructors who moved with such strength and grace, and I remember wanting to be able to look like that when I danced. I poledanced recreationally in Montreal for about 2 years and then I moved to Australia and became exposed to a whole new world of pole dancing. The scene there is competitive yet vibrant, and I soon discovered that pole dancing could be both a passion and a profession. I started competing in Australia, which was a completely nerve-wrecking yet incredibly rewarding experience. I love being able to work towards a goal and finally leave everything on stage.
