I’ve always believed that if you want something in life, YOU have to be the one to make it happen. And that mindset is the reason that I am who I am today. Here’s a story of self-made success. I’m Kristin Farina. I am a professional dancer, choreographer, actress, model, and social media personality – just to name a few. I never was one to put myself in a box, so I do “everything”. I grew up in a very small town in Wisconsin… so small it was actually considered a village. Everything you could need was on the same block, except for the thing most important to me – my dance studio. I learned dedication very early because I had to drive over an hour each way to get the dance training I needed. I missed out on a lot of things growing up including school dances (never went to prom), football games, parties, after-school sports, friends…. but it was worth it to me because I loved to dance. I had the perfect plan to attend college where I would double major in dance and business. As most of us know, sometimes life takes a turn and you’re unable to follow the path you were intending on taking.
