100% yes!! I’ve been in the studio recently and I’m so excited for my solo music!

It’s been absolutely incredible! I’m so grateful for every single person in the Hype House and the compound! These past couple months have been so crazy!

You have over 8 million followers on TikTok. What do you think makes for the most entertaining videos?
I think the in the moment, real and raw videos do the best! Whenever I have a draft video, I feel like it does better than a video I try to make perfect.

How did you get into acting, music, dancing, and gymnastics?
I’ve always been into acting since I was young. I did musical theater growing up and I loved it. I always knew I wanted to move to LA and do something in the entertainment industry.

What was it like opening up for Justin Bieber as part of your original dance troupe “The Acrobats”?
This was such an insane moment for me. I was such a huge Bieber fan growing up so being able to open up for him was amazing.

What could possibly be next for you??
I’m super excited for 2021. I have so many things that I want to accomplish next year. Looking forward to dropping my own music!
