Whitney M.

2013-whitney-m-200I am 22 years old and was born and raised right here in good ole Utah! I went to

Cyprus High school where I made priceless memories dancing on the Spinnaker Drill Team and also the Dance Company. Right after high school I made the University of Utah Dance Team. I danced there for four years and was privileged to be their Captain my last two years. This year is my first season as a Utah Jazz Dancer.

Being a Jazz dancer is such a blast and very time consuming, so my life is a little hectic. I am a student at the University of Utah. GO UTES! I’m majoring in Recreational Therapy, which is perfect for me because helping and motivating others is truly my passion. I graduate from the U this Spring!! I am the definition of Senioritis so I am definitely excited for that! I am currently crowned Miss Pacific Islander Utah, and I have been so blessed to be part of that. I’m half Samoan, so you probably know one of my cousins haha. Although my life is slightly insane, I always make time for my family. I grew up in a very active and hilarious home. I’m the oldest of four children and them plus my parents always equals a good time. I love hanging out with my family and friends. We could sit on a rock and have a blast.

I am always down to try new things. I love living life to its fullest. Laughing is my favorite thing to do. I seriously love boating! I have traveled around the world and Lake Powell is still my favorite place on Earth. Homemade chocolate chip cookies are my go to food. Summer is my favorite time of year. Dancing and performing gives me the best adrenaline. I have had an extremely blessed life and I am so grateful to be on the Utah Jazz Dance team this year. GO JAZZ!
