"GLITTER MAKES EVERYTHING BETTER"
When did you start to get interested in acting and modeling?
I started getting interested in modeling when I was the age 3. I began practicing posing in front of the mirror while going through all my clothes.
For Acting, that came after I signed with my first talent agency. I had auditioned for a commercial and booked it. Ever since that first commercial I fell in love with acting.
If you were an advertisement, which would your slogan be?
