Get to know Berkleigh:


What does being a DBC mean to you?**
Being a DBC means being a part of something bigger than myself. It means upholding an amazing tradition and getting to make positive impacts on other people's lives while getting to do what I love.

Who is your hero?
Someone I look up to is my old dance teacher, Tarah Kemper. She has taught me everything I know about dance, while also teaching me valuable life lessons I am able to carry with me through life.

Tell us about the first concert you've ever been to?My mom took me to Britney Spears when I was 5 and it was probably the best day of my life! She totally rocked the stage!

If there were a movie made about your life, which celebrity would you want to play you? Who would play your parents?
I would want Reese Witherspoon to play me. She is such an awesome actress and role model. Dustin Hoffman for my dad and Mary Steenburgen for my mom.

What is your dream vacation destination?
I would love to travel Europe for a couple of months and get to experience many different cultures.

In 10 years I see myself…
Raising a family and staying very involved in my community, wherever that may be. I have always loved giving back, so one day I would really like to be involved in a non-profit organization where I can help people who are less fortunate.

As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Originally, I wanted to be an orthodontist. Then my passion shifted a little bit and I wanted to be a journalist, which is what led me to going to journalism school at the University of Kansas.

What advice would you give your younger self?
To always give yourself a minute to breathe and take everything in. To never take anything too seriously, and to always be able to laugh at yourself.
