She admitted, “I’ve never even watched the show before, to be honest. I wanted to do it because when they asked me, I thought this is something that I’ve never done and it’d be super fun and a great experience. So I figured, let’s do it!”

She continued, “Mackenzie Ziegler is on the show and I was like, ‘I’m never going to be better than her.’ But I kind of got past it because you don’t have to be the best dancer to win. It’s not just about being the best dancer. It’s about having fun, too.”

The 13-year-old insisted that ultimately she would pull through due to a support system that included dance partner Tristan Ianiero, mentor Artem Chigvintsev, and of course Mama June and her sisters.

“Everyone around me was so supportive. Some days I would get super nervous and frustrated, but Artem and Tristan were supportive and told me I was going to be great,” she said.
