“During the season we’re doing so many things that you’re able to put it in the back of your mind,” she said. “But these last few weeks, since we found out about the release party, have been the absolute hardest. Now it’s like, ‘This is really happening! It’s coming out soon.’”

“Everybody on the team was so happy for me,” said Figuereo. “Our squad – we’re sisters. We go through everything together. After this news came down, I was getting text messages from everybody, somebody was even crying – that just makes you feel really, really good about what you’re going up there to do. They selected one person, but anybody could have been selected from our squad. That one person is representing everyone. We’re so proud of one another.”

“Never in a million years did I think this would happen for me,” she said. “I never even thought about something like that for me. When you try out for the squad, you try out because you want to dance, because you love the team, because you know about the community events the team supports. You don’t try out because you think you’re going to get a photo shoot out of it. This is unbelievably humbling for me.”
