…I got my start, I grew up in the arts and my parents really supported the arts. I danced, I grew up dancing. I’m actually, we are a quarter Okinawan. My dad is half Japanese and that island over there dances. And also, [they’re] such nice people, like they’re just so jolly and happy – I feel like having that in my blood has really helped in this career… I don’t know how, but I know it has. That’s so funny.
