In case you’re unfamiliar with her, the 17-year-old Australian rising social media star is nominated for #Famous at the upcoming 2017 Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards.
“I was so excited to find out that this year I have been nominated for a 2017 Kids Choice Award!” Ashleigh told JJJ. “Just a really quick thank you to everyone who made this possible. So much love.”
She is also an actress, dancer, and singer, who you may recognize best from Dance Academy.
Here are 10 fun facts Ashleigh shared with us:
1. I took my very first dance class when i was three years old. After this first dance class, I refused to go back each week, as i thought i was already ready for the stage!
2. I was born and raised in Sydney, Australia!
3. I hate pasta. I wish I liked it, but I just can’t bring myself to eat it.
4. I have two dogs! One tiny Maltese x Shitzu named Milly and one little Pomeranian named Alfie.
5. My favorite emojis are the two pink hearts and the three twinkling stars.
6. In Australia, we don’t have In-n-Out Burger, so the first thing I do whenever I come to LA, is go straight from the airport to In-n-Out!
7. I have always wanted to go to Bora Bora. It has been my dream destination for years now! It’s so stunning.
8. I am definitely one of those people who can’t stand pineapple on my pizza.
9. When I was six years old, there was a Red-bellied black snake (which is one of the most dangerous snakes in Australia) under my bed. I thought it was a rubber toy and tried to grab it! It started moving just before I touched it so I freaked out and ran out of the room!
10. When I was younger, my older sister Danielle and I would put on performances in our lounge room for our family to see. We charged them $1 each to watch us perform even if they didn’t want to!
