Like most, she's memorized her debit card info to make the process go by even faster. She orders online about 2-3 times a month. Included in the links are a few shops that she regulary shops at.

She's begun exploring contemporary and modern when she started attending BU. She's apart of three dance teams here at BU: Afrithms, Dance Theatre Group, and Sonaldo Salsa Team. Being a dance minor means she's taken plenty of tenchique classes here at BU. She's come to know and love the faculty of the dance department at BU. She also recommends taking a couple dance PDP's as they are super fun for both beginners and more advanced individuals.
