Fun Facts:

1. If Juju could pick anyone from history to be her mentor, it would be Coco Chanel.

"She was a really talented designer and also a great businesswoman at a time where women were not regularly in those positions. She also changed history and how women dress from corseted into more casual chic. I love fashion and putting cool outfits together, I like to be different in my style and she is an inspiration."

2. She's both a dancer and a skier.

"I dance many hours a week in different studios—mostly hip-hop, it's my favorite. I just went to Mammoth for spring break with my family, sister and two of our best friends. We skied to the top and even though I'm a pretty good skier, I guess It was late in the day and I was maybe tired, plus the snow was a bit icy, so me and my friend Alexa freaked out and had to be carried halfway down by the ski patrol in one of those gurneys they use for people who are actually hurt. It was pretty funny, we couldn't stop laughing."

3. She'd love to improve her gymnastics skills.

"I'd like to get better so I could do flips and stuff and not get hurt. I love dancers who do dance acrobatics and breakdancing. I wish I could do that! I am pretty flexible though."

9. She's definitely a night owl.

"I like sleeping in when I can. I do have to get up early for school or for acting work, but at night I feel relaxed and often we go to dance classes, read and rehearse scripts or watch movies with my sister. I also like to be on the phone with my friends then."
