The hard-working actress also attended the National Capital Acting School to study singing and acting before going to Telopea Park School and St Clare’s College where she said she had a great experience but to enhance her abilities as a dancer, she later resolved to be homeschooled. As her dance skills were being groomed, she was able to land a slot to perform at the Stargazers Convention held in Sydney. She made an appearance in the music video of the singer Will Young’s popular single hit Leave Right Now and has performed in different shows while on tour in America. However, her dance career faced a major setback when she sustained a hip injury and was advised by her Manager to switch to acting temporarily.
