“I’ve never been to a prom or a dance; so it’s funny, because we have dances on the show, and I’ll be like, ‘Oh yay! It’s my school dance!’”
“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.”
“In Hollywood, there is a lot of pressure to do certain things and getting into drugs, alcohol, or partying a lot is a major one. I stay out of that, because it is a waste of my time. I always remember where I came from and to never change who I am – I stick to my morals, and I do not let anyone pressure me into doing things that I do not want to.”
