How do you stay grounded in the craziness that is being a content creator in LA?
Being surrounded by amazing people is something that always helps. Recently it's been my fiancé that's been keeping me grounded. He’s such an amazing support system and I couldn’t be more grateful for him.
How did you get into acrobatic gymnastics?
I started going to this gym to start doing cheer leading and I saw that they had acrobatic gymnastics. I fell in love with it immediately and wanted to join the team.
What do you like most about creating content on Tik Tok?
I love that you can do whatever you love doing. Tik Tok is a great platform for anyone and everyone.
What have you learned most about yourself throughout quarantine / the pandemic?
I learned to not take things for granted. I learned how to push myself even in the darkest times.
Where do you see yourself in 5 years?
I see myself doing a lot of things! I have so many aspirations and things I want to do and conquer in this lifetime. I see myself making albums, performing all over the world, and acting on a TV show.
Who are your favorite people to keep up with on social media?
Honestly, the easiest way to keep up with all my friends is on social media. I love seeing what my friends are doing and then having a conversation with them about it.
What has been a highlight of your career so far?
I’ve been so blessed in my career thus far; I feel like I’ve worked with brands that I’ve always dreamed of working with. One moment that I will never ever forget is performing on the Ellen show.
Who would you love to star in a movie with?
Scarlett Johansson. She is a badass and I love it.
What is your favorite thing about living in LA?
I grew up in SoCal so it's home to me. I love the weather, how close we are to the beach, and there's always something to do.
Tell us about your childhood.
My childhood was great. My parents worked very hard so I was able to do what I loved. I grew up always inside the gym. I started gymnastics at a young age and became a high level very quickly. I learned discipline very quickly and learned that if you want something you have to work for it.
When we are all able to travel again, where do you plan to go first?
I’ve always wanted to go to Bora Bora, but I think I’m saving that trip for my honeymoon.
