STORY BY MIN A. LEE
Starting with gymnastics on YouTube at just three years old through your current acting and music, how has the discipline of gymnastics helped you in these areas?
Gymnastics is all about commitment to perfecting what you do. You have to give your all at every moment. By using that same thought in all my other avenues of life, I have been able to be successful.
You’ve released several singles, and two successful songs last year, can you tease us on any upcoming releases?
I am taking some time to work on my EP! I want to really focus hard on it so that it will be something that you and I are very proud of.
You also star in the television series Chicken Girls, which is in its sixth season! Over the years, how has the show helped you grow as an actress so far?
As my first scripted series, I learned about how the behind-the-scenes of production work and everything that goes into making a show.
How was the initial transition from YouTube to film sets for you?
On YouTube, I was just being myself, doing normal daily activities. In film, I had to learn how to play a different person who has different feelings and mannerisms, which was a pretty big jump.
Can you share with us your favorite moment from all the sets you’ve acted on?
When I was on the Camp Nick set, I got slimed many times and, trust me; you will never forget your first time getting slimed!
As we look at all the aspects of your work, how do you hope to see your singing and acting progress over the coming years?
I hope that one day I can transition into films that my fans can see in movie theaters. As far as music goes, I would love to collaborate with other talented artists.
You speak of your family as an incredible source of support. How do you stay grounded and unwind from the hectic schedules of filming and recording studios?
My family has always been by my side, and we always make sure to set times aside for me to relax and do normal kid things.
Finally, you’re our first It Girl! Let’s talk It Girl style, how would you describe your aesthetic?
I personally love everything related to fashion. I love shopping, I love piecing together different looks, and lastly, I love when the perfect outfits come together that makes me feel like me. If I don’t like my outfit, I don’t feel as confident as I usually do. Fashion is a big part of my life, and I generally really love expressing myself through it.
