Q. Take me back to the beginning of your career, can you tell me how you found your love and talent for music and how you decided to make it a career aspiration?
A. “I actually started singing when I was three on my dad’s karaoke machine. He would always take videos of me singing and eventually started posting them on YouTube. As time went on, I started growing a following and now am working with the teen female empowerment platform, Sweety High!”
A. “My parents are my biggest supporters and have been since the beginning. They always told me that if I wanted to sing, they would be right behind me. I wouldn’t be anywhere without them!”
Q. What advice would you give to someone who may have a dream or desire, but is struggling with taking the steps to make them a reality?
A. “I would tell them to never give up, have 150% of confidence and always be you!”
