1. What is something not too many people know about you?
I used to be a very shy person and still am at times. I started performing at the age of nine as a competitive dancer and I was so shy my mom was so nervous about me going on stage, but I was actually more comfortable up on stage than in real life. That continued until a few months later when I started acting that was where I knew I loved it. I started to realize I actually loved the performing more. That’s what I continue to pursue today, along with singing, and have definitely came out of my shell much more by performing, auditioning and ultimately growing up doing what I love.
2. What are your biggest passions?
My biggest passions are acting and singing, I have always felt like they are more than just a title. It gives me strength to come out of myself and into something else, performing for an audience. It makes me come out of myself and think about the story I am trying to tell. Also, I feel like it has taught me, being a teen, how to have a work ethic and grow dedication and to learn that not everything is just handed to you, which helps me in a lot of other aspects in life as well. I work very hard continuously to grow my skill on these and that just grows my passion more and more as I go along.
3. What are your goals for the future?
I definitely want to book a job; film, tv. Maybe even with some singing included in it. I have always made it a point to make the two go hand-in-hand and that I will ultimately want to be successful in them both.
4. What is your definition of success?
To me, success means that you have made people feel something. If you have made people react to what you are doing and what you have put out has had an affect on them, that is the most rewarding and successful thing you could ever do.
5. Tell us something about the projects you're working on.
I am very lucky to have worked and continue to get opportunities to work with such amazing and inspiring people in this business that makes it so easy to continue to love what I do. I am also very very lucky to have a family that backs me up in everything and are so supportive. They make sure that I am always as prepared and ready as possible.
