Q. If you've ever gone away for the holidays, which was the best trip?
A. I was actually in New York for Christmas! This was my first Christmas away from home, but I loved it. I was in New York already because I had just gotten off tour and was preparing to go on a second leg of touring with Jacob Sartorius. Since I was already in the area and New York is one of my favorite cities, I decided to just stay there for the holidays. I met up with family friends to explore the city, visit museums and eat some great food like poke bowls.
Q. What was the first trip you took?
A. The first trip I remember taking was to Spain when I was a little girl on vacation with my family. I loved being near the ocean and eating yummy food on the boardwalk. We ate a ton of fresh fish there since we were on the southern coast of Spain. I remember eating this great pastry that was stuffed with fish and vegetables. After I tried it the first time, it's the only thing I wanted to eat the whole trip.
Q. What is your favorite vacation destination?
A. Maui. The last time I went to Hawaii was when I was a kid, but I want to go back so badly! I love being by the water and think it's such a beautiful tropical destination. I would recommend that they see any of the beautiful waterfalls. Everything in Hawaii is really beautiful in general, so I just recommend getting outside to see all of the views it has to offer.
Q. What untapped destination should people know about?
A. I'm from Los Angeles, so there aren't too many untapped destinations here with all of the tourists and people who live here. An untapped destination that I would love to be able to visit one day would be the hidden ancient ruins buried in the rain forests of South America. I loved learning about it in school and would love to get to see it in person one day.
