I was on the bus ride home and I missed the call so I called back immediately.  When I found out that I made it, I was about to scream but I had to contain myself because the people on the bus were giving me death glares and telling me, “shhh!!” But I was way too excited!  I couldn’t stop smiling all the way home.

15.     Are you excited to have made the ’09-’10 Team!?
ABSOLUTELY! Ever since I decided I was attending NYU I was constantly on the lookout for dance team information and tryouts.  I can’t believe I’m actually a part of it!
