Dancing, Modeling, Entertaining and all that you do, how do you explain yourself in one or few simple words and why?
I believe I’m a multi talented individual. The reason I say this is because I like challenging myself ,I like being versatile and I’m a go getter that works so hard to achieve whatever.
How did you realize that you have a calling for Dancing?
I Honestly used to dance for fun, not that I don’t dance for fun now but what I mean is, I never knew that I can actually take this dancing career to the top and build myself as a brand. I used to dance at school everytime there would be events and stuff, so this one time I danced and almost everyone was like “Aiiva you got to take this serious you need to build a name for yourself, you can really dance”, my teachers also believed in me and that’s were I realised how much I make people happy when I dance and decided to take a step.

What is the good and the worst about Dancing according to Your Experiences?
The good is that you get to dance with different individuals who got different personalities, You get to learn so much about dancing and different styles of dancing. You get to work with big artists, people you look up too.
The worst is that you get those dancers /people who have been in the industry for a while and they are so Rude and think they know everything, but I always tell myself that I’m the best and no one is going to tell me otherwise.
There are so many Dancers in the world, not everyone gets a chance to dance for professional artists, how did you achieve that?
On this one I’d saying knowing the right people and having people that believe in you by your side. I was lucky enough to meet right people who helped me be who I am today and I’m very much grateful.
What are the mistakes do you think other Dancers do that makes their talent not to reach anywhere?
Thinking they know everything, Not helping other people with pure heart, Being jealous and not wanting other people to succeed, always wanting things to come to them and that’s not right learn to give others a chance and celebrate with them.
