Interview questions (by Galore):
Q: How were you discovered?
A: For music, I was discovered two years ago by Babyface’s team. They saw me walk into Urth Café in Los Angeles and sent one of their wives over to ask if I happened to be a singer.
My first fashion photoshoot was a Coachella-themed lookbook for Nasty Gal. They found me on Instagram!
Q: Your favorite song of all time ?
A: Angels by The XX, a friend introduced me to this song as he drove me home one night. We hadn’t seen each other in a while and as it played, we sat there in complete silence. I don’t know how he felt, but for me it was because the lyrics described exactly how I had felt about us. I fell in love with it and it will always be special.
Q: If you could collaborate with any musician who would it be ?
A: I could never choose one, but my top three would be Bruno Mars (he has a smooth and romantic voice that draws you in), Drake (his rapping style and lyrics are genius) or Rihanna (Rihanna’s diversity in music and her attitude towards life is encouraging.)
Q: Summer Boy Crush?
A: I wouldn’t mind going for sushi and a movie with Ryan Gosling or Bruno Mars.
Q: You have covered a lot of pop songs – is there any one that speaks to you personally?
A: Rihanna’s “Stay” is definitely one I connected with personally. I have not been in a lot of relationships, but unfortunately I understand the vulnerability you feel when you are in a relationship that is not perfect, knowing it needs to end, yet feeling too vulnerable and scared to end it.
Q: What is your summer beauty regimen ?
A: Lots and lots of Krav Maga training! I train anywhere from 5-15 hours a week. I recently passed a 56 hour Krav Maga instructor course training and will begin instructing classes over the summer.
Q: Summer vacation plans ?
A: I plan on spending the summer working on my music, but I would love to go back to Guam to spend time with my family and go surfing. I learned how to surf in December last year and became obsessed. I got barreled a time or two - I hear that’s good for a first-timer.
