I was pursuing the arts with theater in school, and I was doing after-school activities, but not in any real movement towards a professional career.
My family is more a sports family, and I figure skated for a very long time, so movement and how I relate to movement is very integral to my process.
I kept hiding my smile in pictures throughout middle school and most of high school until picture day came my senior year.
I love physicality. I love movement very much.
As for the fake teeth, they're officially retired. I haven't really found a need or want to wear them.
My family is first-generation Nigerian, and we grew up in a very small, suburban town in New England, Massachusetts. So I do understand what it feels like to be an 'only' in that regard.
