Auli'i Cravalho Hasn't Splurged On Anything Since Getting Her First Big Paycheck

Auli’i Cravalho joins Damon J. Gillespie at the 2018 NBCUniversal Summer Press Day on Wednesday afternoon (May 2) in Universal City, Calif.

Speaking with CNBC recently, the 17-year-old Rise actress opened up about how she’s saving every penny she’s earned since her breakout in Moana – and how she hasn’t made a huge purchase yet.

“I have not treated myself with any of my paychecks at all,” Auli’i shared. “I’m still in high school, so thinking about college, putting that away.”

College is the number one thing on her mind, too.

“Growing up in Hawaii I thought, ‘Well, somewhere in the mainland, somewhere where I can make it big and get a really good education. Now I’m looking at NYU, I’m looking at Julliard because, well, Julliard is Julliard,” she says.

Auli’i adds, “I’m realizing college applications are kind of sucky. They’re really hard. But I know they’re well worth it.”

FYI: Auli’i is wearing Alexis Bittar jewelry and Sam Edelman shoes.
