My mother enrolled me in Kathak classes when I was five, and I remember falling in love with the dance form. I would always be found twirling around and practicing my steps. I began singing at a very young age as well and always had a natural inclination toward the performing arts. My parents always encouraged me to perform in front of audiences and sometimes had to drag me off the stage because I could stay on there forever. Growing up, the stage was always my favourite place to be. Music, dance, and theatre have been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember, and I truly cannot imagine my life without them.”
