What’s your most embarrassing moment?
I was walking around trying to find the location of a casting. While walking, I tripped and fell very hard. Everyone in their cars at the red light saw. I ended up laughing about it because it’s not uncommon for me to be clumsy, but I was definitely embarrassed.

What’s the most regrettable beauty trend you’ve ever tried?

What’s something people wouldn’t know about you?
The least expected thing about me is my laugh. Something people wouldn’t know about me is that I am a big, I mean big, dog lover.

In a world full of influencers, who influences you most?
Zendaya. She uses her platform to show people to love themselves as they are, to be confident, to stand up for yourself, and to make people recognize that they have a voice. I admire her work ethic and passion for everything that she does. I hope to use my platform in many of the same ways that she does.


What motivates or inspires you?
In terms of work, I get very motivated when meeting artistic and creative people. I think it puts my mind in a different space, and immediately I want to start creating more. I come up with all of these ideas in my head. I also get motivated when seeing known people use their success to influence and help others.

Personally, my grandpa motivates me. I call him Pop Pop. He just turned 79 and it will forever make my heart melt to watch his eyes light up when I tell him I have accomplished something. He never hesitates to tell me he is proud of who I am, and that means a lot to me because I respect him a lot. When I was younger, I always thought he was the coolest because he worked in the investigating field, was humble, and treated everyone he crossed paths respectfully, and still does. Pop Pop is one of the most genuine people I know, and he is a huge part of my inspiration comes from him.

Do you have a self-care ritual or a creative pursuit?
My skincare is very important to me. I usually wash my face three times a day, a morning routine, night routine, and after the gym. This consists of many steps. While doing that I just sit and think. That’s my time for me, and my thoughts.

What’s the worst holiday gift you ever received?
As long as I get a card, I’m happy.

What’s your guilty pleasure snack?
Krispy Kreme Donuts.

Looking back, what advice would you give to your 14-year-old self?
Have fun, love yourself, and don’t think your goals are too wild to achieve.
