Where did you grow up? How was your childhood?
I grew up in Riverside and I’ve lived in Riverside since then. My childhood was fun; I would play a lot with my friends. Growing up we played outside more, whereas now most children just stay in and take over technology. I would say the best memory as a child was hanging out with friends after school and having no worries.
Did you struggle with any insecurities as a child? If so, how did you overcome them or how are you dealing with them today?
Yes, I struggled with acne and not having the best body. As I got older my acne became insane, but it did clear up as time progressed. As far as my body, I have worked really hard to get the body that I have now, which is not even half of where I want to be at.
How important was it to for you to attend and graduate college with a degree in Business?
Well I actually did not even think of going to college or think about my future the way I do now. I would think about just being an actress and a dancer for music videos but never thought I would actually be doing what I love.
When and how did you get into acting? What roles do you prefer to play?
I got into acting because I love the whole process of acting and playing different characters. How I actually started to do acting was by just searching gigs and networking with people.
What are your ultimate goals? What are your plans for the near future?
My goal is to be in novels and movies. I’m currently working for “Grey's Anatomy” and “How to Get Away with Murder” as an extra. On the other side of that, with my degree, I plan to take over my dad’s business, which is a car shop. I also plan to own billboards. I'm not just trying to be a model or actress but a business woman.
