The 20-year-old Suite Life on Deck sweetheart shared her dreams about acting, school and her favorite foods.
On her psychology dreams: “It works hand-in-hand with my acting. It teaches you why people do certain things, and it helps me get into character. Itâ€™s a personal endeavor for me. Education is the one thing that no one can take away from you. Itâ€™s what you learn, and what you take from it.â€
On being a role model: “Oh goodness, I hope I can set a good example. If I can do it, anyone can. Iâ€™m living my dream every single day.”
On doing what she loves: “Being an actress is difficult. Sometimes they wonâ€™t look at you because you donâ€™t have blue eyes and blond hair, and itâ€™s 10 times as hard to get through the door. Sometimes theyâ€™re just not looking for an Asian actress. That was difficult when I was younger, but itâ€™s all part of the job. At the end of the day, it makes you a better person. You canâ€™t think of yourself as an Asian American actress. Itâ€™s not about what you look like, itâ€™s about what you do â€¦ and who you are as a person.”
