She is also an author. She has truly come a long way since rising to stardom playing the role of Zuri Ross in the Disney Channel sitcom "Jessie."

Back in 2019, she discussed her experience growing up in the limelight and receiving hate comments online. She said:

"For me, growing up at a young age in the limelight and on social media, I joined Twitter when I was 10 and I got my Instagram when I was 11, so when I joined Instagram, I did notice a lot of hate comments or people would just, like, nitpick at my appearance, just to be funny. A lot of people go through this. The most popular people do. And for me, being a young age, I didn't understand why these people were saying these things. I would get really, really sad."
