She was born in Milwaukee in December 1998 and is the eldest of four girls, all with Filipino heritage. She began gymnastics at the tender age of six and got into modeling three years later. As a child model, she appeared in advertisements for brands like Sears and Kohl’s, and when she was 10, she was the cover model on the American Girl’s December issue. Two years later, at 12 years, she joined an acting school.
Her Acting Career
After attending the acting school, her parents whisked her off to Los Angeles, where she would get more opportunities as an actress. They moved to LA when she was 14 years, in 2013.
The same year, she got a role as Skylar Storm in Mighty Med, and she stopped gymnastics so she would focus on acting. In her role as Skylar Storm, she has to reclaim her powers from a villain that has stolen them and turned her into an ordinary person. This Disney XD original series had two seasons, and it ran from 2013 to 2015.
Therefore, in 2015, she got another role on Invisible Sister, where she played Molly, a show that had a viewing of over 4 million people the day it premiered. As Molly, she drinks water containing a moth from her sister’s science project and she becomes invisible.
Since Might Med had a spinoff series called Lab Rats: Elite Forces, she was also in it as a superhero who has received her power back, but they are backfiring. Therefore, she has to learn how to use them all over again.
She has also featured in several shows on Netflix, starting with Alexa & Katie in 2017 and joining Hubie Halloween in 2020. In Alexa & Katie, she plays Alexa, a high school freshman who loves basketball and is suffering from cancer.
Towards the end of 2020, she confirmed her relationship with Rhys Athayde when she shared a photo kissing him. Though she had shared several pictures of him on her Instagram account before, she uploaded this particular one on National Boyfriend Day, and its caption was ‘this holiday’ as a hashtag next to the word ‘missed’. Since then, their Instagram feed serves regular pictures of the two, including some goofy Christmas photos dressed as bunnies with a Christmas tree in the background and Christmas gifts planted around it.
Surprisingly, when she introduced her new beau, she had not said anything about breaking up with Jack Griffo and that left her fans confused. However, her relationship with Jack had been on and off severally. Jack has also moved on, and he is now dating Mia Beyer.
