CLAIM TO FAME The pink-lovin’ YouTube personality, known for her openness and hair to-die-for, has gone beyond describing her fashion hauls and giving hair and makeup tutorials to doing a weekly YouTube show with Seventeen Magazine called Fashion Remix!
My go-to karaoke song: “I Will Survive” by Gloria Gaynor and “Independent Women” by Destiny’s Child.
Last time I cried: When I picked up the March 2014 issue of Seventeen Magazine and saw my spread talking about me and my very own show with Seventeen.
What always makes me laugh: My boyfriend Arnold. We have way too many inside jokes.
My go-to comfort food: Too many to mention!
Last thing I ate: Does caramel frap with extra whipped cream from Starbucks count?
Currently on “repeat”: There’s two! “Love Is an Open Door” by Kristen Bell and Santino Fontana (from the movie Frozen) and “Half a Heart” by One Direction.
A guilty pleasure I don’t feel guilty about: Watching Desperate Housewives every night before bed.
Current favorite place: My home. I’m a homebody!
Favorite drink: Water, green tea and Starbucks caramel frap.
Current obsessions: Cute notebooks, loose sweaters and big bags!
Habit I need to break: Eating and drinking sweets.
Hidden talent: It’s not a hidden talent since I do it all the time on my channels, but I LOVE TO SING!
Talent I’d like to have: To be an amazing dancer like Beyoncé and Ciara!
Word or phrase I most over-use: I definitely say “definitely” all the time!
Most treasured possession: Secret!
Favorite hashtag: #ThatsHeart because I love seeing my viewers tag me on their pics, which I often repost.
What’s cool about being Asian: Asian genes. We never age, muahahaha!
My job in another life: I’d probably be a registered nurse, which I would suck at because I don’t like seeing blood LOL.
