My American story started when…
My American story started whenI was 12 years old and came to NYC for acting class, just for the summer. My parents sent me because they knew how important English was and they didn't want me to have an accent. Little did they know that it would do more than spark a fire, it would fuel it for the rest of my life. I always knew I wanted to be an actor. So, I made the decision to come to LA and become Latina Meryl Streep, Latina Viola Davis and Latina Fey all at once. It doesn't sound impossible to me. People have told me I can't do it my entire life, but when they do, I know they're not talking about my limitations, they're talking about theirs. I can and I will.I'm going to do it the immigrant way: working twice as hard and not taking anything for granted. You'll just have to wait and see.
