#Quote
1I'm lucky to have parents who used to be bodybuilders! They help me keep fit by going to the gym and training with me. I'm also addicted to Cardio Barre classes and hiking.
2Yes, I have been studying piano since I was six. Classical, jazz, compositional, Broadway, everything. I just love it all.
3I definitely am a Twihard!
4I am terrified of sharks, so I don't surf!
5Music is my passion, singing, performing. I play piano and musical theater is my background.
6I'm hoping to do more with my music. I did the stage musical 'Spring Awakening' recently and it reignited the love I have for singing.
7My top three personal best-dressed list: Lea Michele. I think she really knows how to dress. Blake Lively is great. And Rihanna. I really respect how bold and out-there she is.
8For me, my favorite trends of summer are lots of color, wedges, rompers and bright lipstick.
9In every high school, there is a clique.
10I am really looking forward to being a role model for girls.
11I like jewelry. Big rings, big necklaces. Shoes, belts, luggage.
12I like to stay hydrated with water throughout the day and snack on apples, but my guilty pleasure would definitely be a caramel macchiato from Starbucks!
