Today we’d like to introduce you to Alysa Gutierrez-Sierra.
Alysa, can you briefly walk us through your story – how you started and how you got to where you are today.
I was born in Newark, NJ. I started dancing at age two. At seven years old I audition to dance for Justin Bieber Purpose Tour and got to perform for the biggest audience I’ve ever perform for. I loved it and was not scared. That night I told my mom when I grows up I want to be an artist. At nine years old I moved to Los Angeles California. I have danced for Meghan Trainor, Gwen Stefani, Pharrell, DJ Khaled, and Dani Leigh since my move to California. I have also been reposted on social media by a few artist for my dancing and my choreography.
Some of the artist who reposted me include, Cardib, Chris Brown, Wisin, Daddy Yankee, Nicky Jam, Anitta, Major Lazor, Enrique Iglesias, just to name a few. It has not been easy for my family and I, there have been a few things happen like being robbed at my apartment. But I believe that I have a purpose to make the world smile. I love to dance and perform because I love to make people happy.
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
It has not been a smooth road. There are a few things that happen. Some are too personal. One thing that happen was we were robbed at our apartment and they took all our things, we didn’t bring much from Jersey to California so when we came back home it felt like they took the whole apartment. My mom was very upset over they taking our computer because it had all our babies pictures of my sister and I, and you can’t replace memories.
Please tell us more about your work, what you are currently focused on and most proud of.
I am a dancer. I love to sing, and I took an acting week summer camp. It was so much fun and I hope to continue to take more acting classes again. I am very proud at all the jobs I got to do and all the artist I got to perform with. I am different because I don’t try to be anyone else. I love being me. I love to inspire people and I love making people smile.
Do you look back particularly fondly on any memories from childhood?
My favorite childhood memory is going to wildwood NJ. I love the Jersey shore so much. I love the rides, the food, the beach, the boardwalk. I hope I can go back soon.
