Biggest success of 2017: “Being casted in my first acting role as Sadie in season 2 of the Hulu original series FREAKISH!”

Her biggest fail and how she overcame it : “Yes! I began putting my happiness in other people and things. I realized that doing so is a shortcut to happiness but it’s not the way to sustain happiness. I wouldn’t say I’ve overcome this because this is a hard concept to fully master even as an adult, but I’ve really progressed by self reflecting, and doing things for myself. This is definitely something everyone should work on!”

Favorite rising star right now: “Rowan Blanchard! She’s super self aware, educated, active in current societal situations and outspoken for her age. She’s an old soul with a mission. It’s refreshing to see someone young in this industry be so awake to the world and use their voice on social media the way she does.”

Best advice for someone looking to succeed in the social media space: “BE YOURSELF and be unique in your own way, even if some people don’t like it. You’re better off having a hundred critique comments stirring the pot around what you post, rather than be a basic cliche picture someone scrolls past on their feed.”
