What is your role in Little Women?
I play Beth March.
Which March sister do you most identify with?
I most identify with Beth. Like Beth, I'm very observant and enjoy helping others. I love playing the piano and wish I could spend as much time as Beth does playing the piano. I also admire Jo's desire for adventure and success just as Beth does.
Little Women was written in the 19th century, but continues to be a beloved story. What do you think makes it so appealing?
I think the story is so appealing because it deals with themes that are still relatable today. This young woman strives for success while staying true to who she is. She won't take no for an answer and continues to work for what she wants. Each sister has her own journey and path that it's easy to find aspects of each sister that we can relate to or create opinions of. Little Women is a story written about everyday people which wasn't common during that time but very relatable, and I think that is why the story has been so successful.
Do you have a favorite story from childhood or a great book that you've read recently?
One of my favorite books as a child was Junie B. Jones. I loved how upfront she was and the experiences she went through while in school. If I read those books now, I may not be a fan of her attitude, but reading about her chaotic adventures was nice getaway from my everyday life as a calm kid.
Jo's sanctuary is her attic. Tell us about a place where you find sanctuary.
I find my sanctuary on my yoga mat. I've been practicing yoga for over 3 years and am currently training to be a yoga instructor. My yoga mat is where I can find peace and balance when life feels chaotic. It's where I can reset and my desire to create refills.
Some things are meant to be.... revealed! What's a secret you've been keeping?
A secret that I've been keeping is that I should be in a boyband. I truly believe that if I took Zayn's place after he left One Direction, the band's success would grow beyond comprehension for having a woman in it.
