I did not know I wanted to be an actor for a long time but I knew I had a calling for performing. I did ballet for a long time when I was really young. When I got older I continued to do dance and dance competitively. After I attended a summer camp for musical theater. I knew I wanted to take acting more seriously and pursue it as a career.
What initially made you fall in love with acting?
When I perform I get this sense of belonging. It feels like I am doing what I am meant to be doing. Practicing my craft and performing for an audience made me fall in love with it. Along with all of the other things for example, being challenged to transform myself into a different character that is not anywhere near my personality.
What are some of your favorite shows and movies?
Some of my favorite movies would be Beetlejuice, August Rush, Stand By Me and Matilda. Some of my favorite shows would be Friends, Glee, Full house and Stranger Things.
Who are some of your acting influences?
A couple of the people who influence me in acting would be Rita Moreno, Ellie Kemper, Isabella Gomez, Robin Williams And many more.
Have you ever worked with mentors?
I have met so many actors who became a mentor to me just on that one time on set. I met so many people who have been apart of this industry for years. They always have something interesting to say.
What do you love most about acting?
I love being able to transform into a completely different person. I also love the creativity that goes into trying to tap into a persona to become a character. That part of acting gets my creative mind going.
Can you tell us about how you got involved in the show Dhar Mann?
I got involved with being on The Dhar Mann show by doing an audition for one part, then later on I got called back to play an extra.
What’s been the most enjoyable part of working on the show?
One of the most enjoyable parts of working on Dhar Mann would be meeting everyone on set. The set environment is nothing like I have ever experienced. Everyone is super positive and it feels like family.
What is the biggest challenge that you’ve faced so far, and how did you overcome it?
One of the biggest challenges I have faced was learning to let go. When you do auditions they don’t tell you if you don’t get the part. When I first started acting this was hard for me. I would often overthink about what I did wrong or if I could have improved something. I overcame this by looking at auditions with a different approach and a different attitude. At the end of the day it wasn’t meant to be and I will get the acting part that will be fit for me.
What would you say has been your biggest success as an actor so far?
It may seem silly but my biggest success as an actor so far is that I am considered an actor. To have people know me because I am an actor, that’s my success. This has been a dream of mine for a while. I am beyond grateful that I’m living in it one day at a time to try and further my career.

We know that you’re passionate about the environment. What are you doing to make the world a greener place?
To keep the world a greener place I continue to be aware of my product consumption.

If we all make small changes, we can make a huge difference.
