You’re only twelve-years-old, and yet you’ve already been recording music for quite some time. What’s your favorite song that you’ve recorded?
When I Was Your Man. It was a Bruno Mars cover, and we just had a lot of fun recording it.
Are you a Bruno Mars fan?
Yes! I love his music.
When you’re filming a show or music video, what’s your favorite part about being on set?
I like getting to portray different characters and venturing into new environments. Filming music videos is so fun because I love being with my friends and laughing. Messing up is the funniest and most fun part in my opinion.
Is there anything you hate about being on set?
It can be super stressful but for the most part it’s really fun.
Do you see acting as a part of your future? Is it something you want to continue pursuing?
Yes! I’d love to be on a T.V. show one day. I think that would be really cool.
Do you have a favorite Brat show?
Total Eclipse. I’m a Kenzie fan!
How long have you known you wanted to be in the entertainment industry?
I’ve been singing for five or six years. I used to just mess around recording funny stuff on my parents’ computers, but now that I’m a little bit older I’m realizing I want a career in it.
How long have you bee into makeup?
I started playing with my mom’s makeup when I was four, but of course she’d never let me go out wearing it. I used to just go crazy putting it all over my face. I think when I was 11 I started taking it seriously and learning how to actually use it.
Who is somebody you admire or look up to?
Music-wise I really look up to Billie Eilish. In the modeling world I look up to Bella Hadid and Kendall Jenner. I think they’re really beautiful and seem like good people.
If you could be any character on a Brat show, who would it be and why?
I love Cassie on Total Eclipse, but I also think it would be really fun to be part of the Chicken Girls cast.
Where do you see yourself in ten years?
Modeling and singing. I hope I put out an album. I’m working on a couple new songs now, and filming a video for a new Justin Bieber cover this Sunday.
What is your very favorite thing to do when you’re not on set or working?
I think it would have to be ice skating with my friends.
Are you a skilled skater?
I’m decent. I can do some spins. Falling down on the ice is THE WOST, but it’s worth it. I’ve been skating for maybe three years…I could still use some practice.
If you could live anywhere in the world where would it be and why?
I’d live in England. It’s really pretty there. I’d like a tropical island environment too.
What’s your favorite show these days?
I’m really into Stranger Things. Looking forward to Season 3!
What is your favorite youtube video that you’ve posted?
Human Hamster Ball Challenge! I fell down A LOT during that one.
What’s one thing you couldn’t live without?
What’s your favorite ice cream flavor?
Are you vegan?
Yes. I watched this documentary called Cowspiracy and I haven’t eaten meat since. It’s been five years. I just love animals so much and I don’t want to do anything to hurt them.
What’s your favorite ride at Disneyland?
Definitely Splash Mountain all the way. I also really love Soaring Over California. I don’t like rollercoasters.
One last fun fact?
Ice skating is actually a secret passion of mine. I’m also interested in being a vet or a zoologist when I grow up.
