What’s your earliest musical memory?
Listening to Nelly Furtado’s ‘Powerless’ in the car with my mom when she picked me up from kindergarten.
Did you grow up in a musical household?
There was always music in my house. My mom sang a lot, and my sister was constantly playing something—either music or films. My sister taught me so much about popular culture.
You started your professional musical journey on a casting show “Kiddy Contest” at the age of 12. Did you always see yourself pursuing a career in music?
I always had this feeling—as if I could see my own future—that I would be a performer. I remember my jaw dropping while watching Hannah Montana when I was young. I felt it in my chest that this life was meant for me.
Do you remember the first song you ever wrote?
Yes! I was 11-years-old and it was super dramatic. I wrote the song on my guitar. The lyrics were something like ‘I’m alone in this world, do you feel my pain?’ Lol!
