When I first moved to LA at 11-years-old, I was so bright-eyed. I saw a lot of opportunities and was really excited about everything. I wish I could go back and capture that little girl and get that feeling back sometimes. I wasn’t worried, I wasn’t scared, I was just so excited. As you get older, you worry more… You get scared. You get scared of yourself. You don’t really have that confidence all the time compared to a kid. That’s something I’d like to get that back every once and a while.
