From the animated cartoons to the live action television shows, Disney stories have impacted her life and helped inspire her to go into the entertainment industry. She may have grown up far from the parks, but she was lucky enough to have grandparents who live near Disney World, giving her the perfect excuse for plenty of family Disney trips. She went to Disneyland for the first time in 2017 and absolutely loves it!
