When I was living in the Dominican Republic, the local kids became a part of my family.
I've seen so many scripts, and I want to do everything. Like with kiteboarding, you have to be fearless. I'm not scared.
With kiting, you have to land a trick, and in that instant you know whether you won or lost – I knew I could become the best in the world if I trained. But with acting, there are different variations; there's not a right or wrong way. It's so hard because it's so out of your hands. I have no idea what's going to happen!
I'm working on a movie called 'Labor Day' with Kate Winslet while still balancing kite boarding. Being an actress and an athlete is a challenge, but I'm excited to see what happens.
I started kite boarding when I was 13. My dad was a kite boarder, and I begged him to teach me until he finally agreed. He made me wait because it can be dangerous.
