Maiya WaltersPeople's Choice Award
1.What is the funniest thing you believed as a child?
As a child, I used to believe that if I ate the seed of a fruit, a tree would grow out of me. I remember being fascinated by the idea of having a tree growing out of me, and I would often experiment by planting seeds in pots and watching them grow. Eventually, I grew older, and realized that the process of growing a tree was much more complicated than simply eating a fruit seed.
2.What is the one talent you wish you had?
If there was one talent I wish I had, it would be tumbling for dance. When I watch other dancers incorporate tumbling into their routines, I can't help but feel a sense of admiration. I have yet to master the gymnastic or acrobatic aspect of it. I am working on mastering the ability to perform tumbling passes with ease, as it would take my dancing to a whole new level.
3.Other than your family, who is your biggest supporter?
I consider myself extremely fortunate to have my Coach Delpha as my biggest supporter aside from my family. She has been a major factor on my journey towards achieving my goals and has helped me understand the value of the crown and the title that I hold. She has been a constant source of motivation and inspiration, pushing me to be the best version of myself. I am grateful for her dedication to my success.
4.What is the best costume you’ve ever worn for Halloween?
The best costume I've ever worn for Halloween is Daphne from Scooby Doo. Im a fan of the cartoon series, and Daphne has always been my favorite character. I spent weeks looking for a purple mini dress, orange knee-high boots, and a green scarf that matched Daphne's signature style. I even bought a red wig to complete the look. The look was complete, killed the look, and was proud of my creativity coming to life.
5.What song makes you 100% of the time want to dance?
Lady Marmalade is not just a song that makes me want to dance 100% of the time, but it's also a song that holds a special place in my heart. I love it so much that I even made my senior dance solo using that song. Whenever I hear Lady Marmalade, I can't help but move my body to the beat as it fills me with joy and excitement. Voulez-vous dancer avec moi?!
