Biggest success of 2017: “I wrote two books, ‘Hey! It’s okay to be you!’ which is already out, and ‘Think Beyond Pink’ which will be out in March. I also had my first leading role in a series, Guilty Party and I finally got the courage to dye my hair blue!”

Goals for 2018: “I’m hoping to remain happy in 2018 and to continue to have a good balance. I’m also hoping to creatively challenge myself when it comes to my content.”

Her biggest fail and how she overcame it : “I almost burnt down my apartment because of leaving my candles on and it was incredibly scary. I had to take time for myself and learn more about safety in apartments.”

Favorite rising star right now: “I’ve been obsessed with a band called Waterparks! They’re so cool.”

Best advice for someone looking to succeed in the social media space: “Authenticity is so easily read and appreciated. When you fake authenticity, people can tell.”
