I didn’t like dance until I was 18. I made a promise to myself after I didn’t attend my Junior prom because I felt I was going to embarrass myself. Which is why during my senior year I while learn to dance. So I started learning from Koreans on YouTube and now the rest is history.
... I'm collecting "retro” games, more specifically, Nintendo 64.
