When your at a photoshoot what is your mindset?
That’s an interesting question. I don’t take things too seriously to be honest. It’s important to be professional of course, but I will also like to have fun. Between shots I talk to photographers and have a laugh, but as soon as it’s time for a shot I focus on the job at hand – mixing up the poses and expressions, and connecting to the camera.

Balancing school commitments and my acting/singing work is an important goal for the next 4 years. Building a successful career in Acting – both Film & TV. Write and Produce more of my own films.

Do you have any advice for teens in your field?
My biggest piece of advice is to follow your dreams and always be yourself. It’s really easy to compare your journey to other actors or singers, but it’s not a competition, it’s about following your own path. Work hard, be humble, have integrity and enjoy the successes that come your way.
