You are super close with fellow internet sensation Lele Pons—what is something people would be surprised to learn about her?

Lele can eat everything and anything and still looks amazing!!

You and your brother Sebastian work together quite a bit—how do you make that relationship work as both family and colleagues work?

My brother and I have always been very close, although we're very different we enjoy each other's company and have made a strong friendship out of it. For us it's fun to work together and bond not only in a family matter but also with work and creativity.

You were in a pretty epic Blink 182 video—how did that come to be? The video is hilarious as is but anything wild happen while filming?

Hannah [Stocking], Lele [Pons] and I were all chosen randomly to make the video and it was one of my best experiences thus far. The filming started at 4am so I guess you could say we were all very loopy and delirious making it a very funny experience. We pretty much ran around the whole day and they kept feeding us so at least we got to run it off.

Tell us about Miami swim week! What was your favorite part?

Miami Swim Week is always one of my favorite times of the year, being born and raised on Miami Beach I feel very at home. My favorite part this year was definitely the Treats Mag Afterparty, the setting was so fun and everybody was so nice. Also the Kaohs Runway was the best runway I got to see, I absolutely loved every detail.

Speaking of…your swim game is on point! What are some of your favorite places to buy swimwear?

I have a major obsession with swim wear, I don't think any girl could ever have enough suits! I absolutely love Frankie's Bikinis, one of my top favorite lines.

What workouts are you currently obsessed with?

I'm always obsessed with cardio. I always feel so good after a good run outside or on the treadmill. It helps me relax and gives me my own thinking time.

What kind of music gets you in the mood to work out?

I love listening to upbeat Drake when I work out and also love to run to house music, and Disclosure rocks.

What kind of outfit makes you feel the most ‘YOU’?

Any Good American jeans or jean shorts and a crop top with sneakers. I always feel my most comfortable. Also rompers are always my go-to.

What is the #1 thing followers tell you when they meet you IRL?

I always get the sweetest compliments and they always love to tell me how they admire my friendship with Lele which is very kind.

What accomplishment are you most proud of so far?

I'm most proud of myself for picking up my things and moving across the country to follow my dream of acting at the age of 18. Every day I wake up in LA, I feel motivated and ready for everything, because if I could move from East Coast to West Coast on my own at such a young age and support myself throughout, then I can do anything!

Do you have any exciting projects in the works?

Yes! I just wrapped an awesome series with AT&T Hello Lab, with a very very cool cast which i'm excited to announce in the next month!

To you, what does it mean to be a ‘good American’ girl?

For me, a "good American" girl means a strong female that can surpass anything with her mind and her strength, it's a girl that sets her mind to something and can accomplish her highest goals, and of course, is a hot girl with a hot mind.
