My big break was becoming the spokesperson for Texas Instruments. Casting directors really started giving me a chance to read for projects.
I like clean-cut, very proper, very elegant looks.
I think the best advice came from Drew Barrymore, about always finding love in everything you do and keeping a positive attitude and being thankful.
My secret is one the world needs to know - nearly a billion people a year die from unsafe drinking water.
My father is Cuban. Spanish was my first language, but I don't speak it that much anymore because I had dyslexia, and in school they work with you only in English. But I'm proud to be Latina, and most people don't know I am.
I know that some girls look up to me for certain things, like dyslexia, and that way I know that they like me for me, so it adds no pressure.
My family was absolutely supportive. I did have a fear of cold reads because of my dyslexia, but my family's support and reading classes really helped me overcome my fear!
I'd like to help other kids with dyslexia, because I'm dyslexic. It was very hard, and I know that what I went through, other kids are going through.
I have to work extra hard because I am dyslexic. People said that I couldn't be an actress, but I'm proving them wrong. Acting has helped me overcome the challenge.
I do have many of the same friends I grew up with. Most I've known since we were three or four years old! I have made new friends as well.
I think that since it's prom, you should definitely wear a long dress. You can wear a short one anytime! This is the moment when you get to be a princess, and for me, that means a sweetheart neckline, long, then pouf - out and big.
I'm really into tall boots. I just got some new ones from Michael Kors that have these little gold studs. I have Valentino ones that I really love. Real, real tall boots!
I always finish off my look with a spritz of Vera Wang Pink Princess.
