Is there someone who influenced you to pursue a career as an actress?

Watching Skai Jackson on Jessie was inspirational because she looked like me. That's when I decided I wanted to be in movies and TV shows. Another idol of mine is Zendaya, and I also grew up watching her and continue to admire her career.

You star in the Disney + movie "Better Nate than Ever," which was released on April 1st. Portraying Libby, how would you describe her personality? Do you relate to her in any way?


Libby is very spirited and fun. She is confident and supportive of her best friend Nate, and I relate to her in those ways because we have similar energy.

You are joining the cast for season 3 of "High School Musical: The Musical: The Series." What is most exciting about being on this set?


I love getting to hang with the amazing cast behind the scenes. We have had so many fun off-screen moments and even off-set as well.

What advice would you have for young people who are starting in this industry?


My biggest piece of advice is to remain authentic and remain humble. I know everyone says to be yourself, but you must stay true to yourself because authenticity will read on screen and get you further. Humility is also necessary because it makes you more pleasant to work with.
