Quotes

#Quote
1If you don't love acting more than anything else, don't do it. It's not a normal life. It will take you away from your family, friends and life in general.
2I'm kind of scatterbrain and all over the place at times.
3I grew up on classic Nintendo, which was amazing. My best friends were hardcore into it.
4My must-have hair products are Phyto silk spray and Kusco-Murphy setting lotion.
5I make a sincere effort to do some form of exercise every day, except for Sunday. That's church and hang out day.
6I'm really low maintenance for a girl. I pretty much shower, attempt to fix my hair, throw on some mineral make up, and go.
