She says growing up Latina in Miami gave her the cojones to face life in Hollywood. Her career so far, including roles in Disney Channel’s Elena of Avalor, FX’s The Americans and Freeform’s Young & Hungry is ample proof of that.

She opens up about wrestling with imposter syndrome, learning to say no, and the “big trap” of feeling like you’ve made it.
