For a good year and a half she wore a back brace that assisted her in putting her back in the right position. It required being on all the time but when she's filming, she's allowed to remove it. She likes socializing with her mates and can name making clothes as one of her hobbies. Learning how to make music on guitar is also one of her interests and it was due to her colleague from the series that she's making that she learnt the basics.
She believes that education is important and wishes to study at University of New York and gain more knowledge in psychology and decorations. In her spare time, she updates her own official website.
