“I love acting. Modeling is fun, too, but I feel like there is more room to stretch yourself and open yourself up to new experiences with acting. That’s why I got into acting in the first place.”

“Something I love about ‘Teen Wolf’ is that my character is written in as just a normal girl. She could have been any ethnicity; she doesn’t have to be Asian.”

“You can be more creative in acting by bringing your character to life and bringing a piece of you that wasn’t there before. You could have five different actors play one role, and all five of them would be so different because each person brings a different piece of them into it.”

“I grew up in America – I was born and raised in Texas. I might look different, but at the same time, I’m pretty American.”

“If you are friends with someone, and you’re like ‘Hey, what ethnicity are you,’ that’s cool. But you wouldn’t walk up to a white person and say, ‘What kind of white are you?'”

“I’m so tired of people saying you have to look a certain way to be American.”
