In a 2016 interview with the Deseret News, Dancing with the Stars pro Chelsea Hightower said, "I was the most determined child to go out to L.A. . . . and prove to myself and to other members of the church that it was possible to stand strong in a world that was so dark, in a world that stood for everything but what you stood for."
Hightower insists that she has felt God's hand guiding her throughout her life. "I felt like . . . the Lord was opening doors for me and guiding my path, and I’ve felt like dance was a part of that path since I was 9 years old. . . . I remember thinking, ‘OK, if I continually put the Lord first, and if I continually focus on growing myself and my spirituality, the right opportunities will fall into place, and the wrong ones will fall out of my life."
