Southeast Texas has a new celebrity, a Lamar University student, and West Brook alumna, Gwendolyn Cormier has been chosen as a dancer for the Houston Rockets Launch Dance Crew.

"When I saw my name I got up with joy," says Cormier.

"I was actually at work at the time and when I screamed everyone knew what happened," she says.

On the list was number 325, that was the tryout number for Cormier.

"I still have to pinch myself, It's so unreal," She says.

The Lamar Engineering student has already showcased her talent on YouTube, to inspire them to reach their goals.

"The only fear you have to fight is yourself," Cormier says.

Now, she has an even stronger case for "confidence" after making the team.

She's living proof to always going confidently in the direction of your dreams.

"Go for your passion and run with it, know there's so much talent here [Southeast, Texas]," she says.

Gwen's first performance will be during the 2017-2018 season.
