Upon graduation, she was accepted by audition to attend a summer intensive with Dance Theater of Harlem, the first Black classical ballet company in existence. Soon after, she began to focus her artistic efforts, whether in the disciplines of dance, music, or theater, on projects whose narratives are based around social justice issues. Now, she is running for city council in her hometown of Healdsburg, CA to amplify the voices of marginalized communities and create more economic vitality for local artists.
