REESE - BECOLLECTIVE CORE AMBASSADOR
My name Reese and i’m 16 years old! I live in San Diego, California. I have been dancing since I was 4, and I have enjoyed every second of it! I study ballet, contemporary, and jazz at Lynch Dance Institute, and i’m also a member of my high school’s varsity dance team. When I’m not dancing, I love to hang out with my friends! I am so thankful to be able to express myself through the art of dance. Being able to let go of anything negative in my life and reflect the music with movement is such an indescribable feeling. One of my goals is to train in a ballet company. Ballet is my favorite style of dance, and I would do anything to have a career in it. This is a very high goal that I set for myself, but I plan to work hard to achieve it. Another goal of mine is to find confidence in myself, and wearing SimplyBE helps me move closer to this goal every day. I am so thankful for the opportunity to be a part of BEcollective this year! Becoming a member of this magical team has been one of the best experiences of my life, and I wouldn’t change it for the world. I consider every member my family.
