  • I was raised here and have always wanted to stay. I love my people and the county where I was raised.

    I live in War, West Virginia and flatfoot everyday. Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night and start dancing. We need more things in this county for young people to do.

    I hope to pass on my love for flatfooting to the kids here.
