Ciara

Ciara was the captain of the Riverdale High School cheer squad during her time. She's still a huge proponent for cheer in schools and believes it teaches girls immeasurable athletic skills and discipline. She did drop out during her senior year to pursue music, but she doesn't regret the decision. "Unfortunately, I couldn't be as involved as I wanted to be because it was the year when my music started to become even more important to me."
