Meet my daughter Samantha!

She is a 19-year-old model/actor that loves sports, dance, and Olivia Rodrigo!

When she has free time, she hangs out with her friends, plays Just Dance, and watches movies.

We are so proud that she just finished her 4th season of Ballet Arizona’s The Nutcracker.

This brave young woman gets up on a really big stage with a significant visual impairment!

Not much slows her down.

We could all use a little of her confidence!
