Personal life

Her character is Harmony.

Beyond Glee and The Glee Project, she lived with fellow Glee Project contestant, Hannah. They lived together until September when Hannah returned to her hometown. She played Snow White in the "Snow White Christmas" with Neil Patrick Harris, another Glee guest star, playing the "Magic Mirror," at the El Portal Theater from November 30 to December 18. She starred as the lead in the musical "The Last 5 Years," starring alongside Alex Trevino, at the Brauntex Theatre, Texas from January 6–8.

She portrayed 'Wendla' in the Los Angeles production of Spring Awakening till April 22, the part which Lea Michele originated on Broadway in 2007 - 2008.
