Nicknamed “Chachi” by her family.
Most people think the nickname came from Scott Biao’s character “Chachi’ on Happy Days, but actually Chachi is short for muchachita; which, in spanish means “little girl”. She was born in Houston, Texas, the youngest of 5 siblings. With such a big family, it called for a fun upbringing doing lots of different things just being around her older brothers and sisters. Early on, her my mom and dad told her to pick something she wanted to do and to do it well. So, at age 6, she picked ballet and she enrolled me at a nearby dance studio where she trained for three years. At around the age of 9 she went to a dance event where she saw for the first time a hip hop dance crew.
Coincidently, it just so happened to be Moons’ Marvelous Motion. Instantly, she was hooked and told her parents that this was what she wanted to do.
Immediately, she could feel the music and instinctively wanted to move differently than she ever had in ballet. Within the same month she enrolled in a new middle school and by a stroke of luck it was one of the only few schools in Houston that had a hip hop dance crew. She was extremely shy at first and hid behind her mom when she was first introduced to the new dance instructor.
