What is the highlight of your work?
A highlight of my work is my very first theatre performance. It was Gateway Theatre’s 2003 production of The King and I, and I got to share the stage with my mom and my sister. I remember being so close with all the other royal children, and we created a kids version of The Small House of Uncle Thomas to show the adults after the closing matinee.

Future goals:
Write some songs, write some plays, choreograph a tap show and learn how to beatbox!
