My parents because they are both musicians and are very supportive. Also, Xxxtentacion has meant a lot to me creatively and has been an inspiration ever since I met him after one of his concerts.
How did you get started in the business?
My parents are musicians so I started doing music from a young age. They were supportive about the Arts, so I started taking dance when I was 6 and then I stopped that and started acting.
