TyZhane Joy Babineaux is currently a student at the university with big dreams of fame, opening a dance studio, and success.
“I would already want to have beautiful popular music out, fans, a TV and radio show,” Babineaux said.
Aside from the wish of being the “IT” girl, she hopes to be a role model for her family. Rather than being averse to the idea of fame, she welcomes it.
“I want to be famous, yes, and for the right reasons. The fame I want will be pure, hopefully,” Babineaux said.
Considering herself to be extroverted, proud, strong, a homebody, funny, and loving, Babineaux felt that her past experiences shaped who she is today.
“I have the gift of vibe reading, sometimes it’s on point but sometimes I learn my lesson that I can’t trust anyone.” Babineaux said.
One of the most memorable experiences for Babineaux was when she was promoted to General, or head captain, in her dance team despite naysayers telling her she could not accomplish such a feat.
“I knew I could do it,” Babineaux said, referring to the possibility of being promoted to General.
Although Babineaux’s father is striving for self-change apart from the family, her mother remains present and works just as hard to support her daughter.
“My father was working hard to change himself; I just wish he was still here to continue his change.” Babineaux said.
Since she was as young as two, Babineaux had always loved to dance. She views dance as something to look forward to after a tough day, especially when stressed.
Although TyZhane is her first name, Babineaux prefers to go by the name Joy.
“My mother said when she had first seen me, I looked like joy,” Babineaux said.
