GetSetUp Startup Accelerator winner and plant-based diet enthusiast Twyla has always dreamed of being a backup dancer for the Rolling Stones, her favorite band. On July 30th, she was able to fulfill her dream when she danced as a backup to Miss You by Stones tribute band Jumping Jack Flash at the Fox Performing Arts Center in Riverside.
She believes it is important to pursue your dreams at any age, however, it's even more important to pursue them as we age.
"Pursuing our dreams affords us the opportunity to be an inspiration to others. Not just our children and grandchildren, but our friends, our community, our TikTok followers, and most importantly, others our age! By doing what we love, we can inspire others to awaken, discover and pursue their dreams."
