Here’s 5 fast facts about Aria!
She quickly overcame her fears on All That…
The most memorable moment was my first live audience show on All That. I was slightly nervous before it started, but when I started performing, all of that went out the window. It was almost like my excitement took over in the best way.
…but not everything has gone smoothly.
My most embarrassing moment was when we were rehearsing a sketch and I had to run out of a classroom. I slipped and fell in front of all of the producers, writers, and executives. Everybody laughed because they thought I did it on purpose. So embarrassing…
She has a positive way to deal with social media pressure.
The pressure to have this “perfect image” on social media is the biggest pressure we are exposed to right now. I try to make sure I am not on social media too much and I also unplug every once in a while to help stay focused.
She’s a budding coiffurist.
I love doing hair and I’d love to do hair in my own films one day.
She won’t eat THIS.
I refuse to eat eggs. No matter how you cook them, they are so disgusting to me.
