For me, the time when I'm trying to get focused is all about looking forwards, and trying to do something worth remembering, but also looking back at my family and trying to make them proud.

Alot of the music is also about doing things for myself, because my parents don't approve of cheer, or dance, but I do it anyway.

I like to listen to hip hop songs that are catchy & upbeat. They usually are cocky songs so I get all pumped to perform & feel confident :)
We listen to cheer music as we are getting ready in the hotel rooms, it gets everyone ready for the day.

i ALWAYS listen to other peoples cheer music, for some reason i just think of the amazing routines that go along with the music and i get so pumped up .
