Takeaways

1. I am Latin Asian and this is what makes me authentic and unique. I am a singer songwriter and dancer, the reason I was able to learn all these skills is because I was able to learn different cultures.
2. My influences were Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Pia Mia, Camila Cabello. I come from a non-musical family at all. Over the years they understood that I am an artist.
3. I was born and raised in Lima Peru but my parents migrated from China. My mom migrated from Lima to LA. I was always back and forth between LA and Peru. I learned English from traveling all the time and the pop songs.
4. I learned the piano, ukulele and guitar. Voice is my first instrument.
5. I knew from a young age that I wanted to be that pop star.
6. LA is multi cultural, Lima is super condensed is not very multi cultural but there’s a community of Chinese.
7. I speak 3 languages. My first Language is Spanish. I speak English and Chinese.
8. Latin American culture and Chinese culture is very different, the coming to LA was completely different as well. It was a little of a struggle with cultural identities.
9. I have a message of confidence; I have a message of empowering. My housekeeper was the one who raised me and represented someone who I looked up to. I am always be surrounded by girls.
10. What I like more about the music is the process from a little concept to a great production.
11. Having the vision and the concept is key. That saved me a lot of time. On set we don’t have time to create we just have to do what we already created.
