Alexis Edwards

My name is Alexis Edwards. From a young age, music and dancing were my passions. I sang and danced for my family, but as time went by, I stopped and thought that maybe I wasn't as great as I thought I was. That daring child that didn't care about what other people thought grew up and left someone who wasn't sure of herself. I can say, however, that I sang in high school because I loved it, and now dance in college for the Filipino club, F.O.C.U.S. because I wanted to learn new dances and basically dance them all the time after I learned them.

In Middle school, I was the quiet child that didn't say anything to anyone unless she was with her friends. High school was the same, but I noticed that I came out of my shell more; and, I give credit to my best friend for helping me realize that I can be crazy whenever I want because I can.

I was a Girl Scout from 1st Grade to the end of my High School career (I miss selling cookies, especially the Thin Mints. They made my life). I performed many service hours while in elementary and high school and I'm grateful for the times I served because it causes you to see the world in a new light and be thankful for everything you have. Not everyone is as fortunate, plus, everyone has a story so you can't judge them on the first encounter.

I adore Old School music and artists such as The Temptations, Michael Jackson, Bell Biv DeVoe, SWV, After 7, etc. They have made my life amazing in that I can relate to certain songs of theirs. Music in general gives me life which is why I listen to it nonstop.

Well, I think that's me in a nutshell. My life is all about music, dancing, singing, and having fun because I only have one life. Its too short to be angry, hold grudges against people, or be jealous. No one has time for it, just have fun and be who you are. If people judge right off the bat because you were being you, they aren't worth a place in your life. You deserve better.
