I’m known as Lace around campus at the performing arts college I attend because I use lacy ribbons sometimes in my dance routines. I’d like to believe I’m unforgettable because I’m highly skilled in many forms of performance art, but I have a feeling it also has something to do with what I can do with my body.
What do I mean?

My goal after I complete college is to join a major dance trope and share my fluid grace with audiences around the world.
The unexpected bonus to being this flexible?
I bring self-pleasuring to a whole new level – and I do – often.
