GOALS

How I want to change the world: I just want everyone to feel loved, supported, and seen. I always try to treat people with respect and compassion, and I hope that starts a ripple effect for others to act the same. Even though I’m only one human, hopefully what I do can move us closer to that goal. 
How my generation will change the world: I believe that my generation has more social awareness, and though we still have a long way to go, I have great hopes that we’re on a path to a kinder, and more accepting, and more inclusive world.
Dream role: The lead of a ‘50s musical set in London, starring me and Tom Holland
I’d star in any movie with: Zendaya
If I weren’t acting/singing, I’d be: Working in marketing or event planning
Dream dinner guest: Michelle Obama
