“I started singing when I was 8. I originally come from Guam; I was in school and all my friends wanted to try out for this play, and I kind of followed the crowd and I auditioned for it. I ended up getting the part of Cinderella, so that’s how I started singing! It’s also how I found myself on stage and got comfortable with myself. I continued to sing and started singing at Japanese weddings. Everyone started telling my parents, ‘you have to move her off the island’ and I was begging my parents to let me move to LA. When I was 13 they agreed to let me go to LA for the summer and said I could stay there for three months, but then had to return back to school in Guam… I never went back, I’m still in LA!”
