#Quote
1The sky's the limit. Reach for the stars. Anything that you want to do, you never know. Like anything's possible. Like, if I can get here, anyone can. I was just a little two year old saying I want to be on TV and you know, I going to be doing my own show next month. And so I really think you should just try, 'cause you never know, and if you really, truly want to do this and you really have passion for it, go for it. Because no one should tell you that you can't do something.
2(On her character "London") It's so much fun to play London, because she's my fantasy character. Her daddy owns the hotel, she shops until she drops, everyone works for her, and her closet is a dream.
3Writing in a journal comes naturally to me. It helps me escape reality for a while. When I'm upset, instead of taking it out on my brothers. I'll write it down. I feel so much better afterwards.
4I'm the oldest in my family, so I do nothing but chores, chores, and chores! I do the laundry and cooking, and I drive my brothers everywhere. I'm like a second mom!
5I live in heels, give me a pair of flip-flops and I'll trip all over myself.
6My first kiss was on The Suite Life of Zack and Cody (2005), actually. I was a late bloomer - I was 16, and I did it front of, like, 50 people!
7Shoot for the moon, if you fall you might catch a star.
