She told FASHION Magazine's Winter 2018 issue: "I definitely try not to think about the pressure because you can choose to think of it as ‘OMG, there’s so much pressure to be this...' or you can think of it as a gift. It’s a motivation; it’s something that makes you want to be better and work harder. I try to think of it that way. Of course, I’m only human, so sometimes I get stressed out.

"But I think my number one responsibility is just growing day by day, learning and becoming a better human being. All of this is great, but all of this can go away. At the end of the day, you are stuck with you, and that’s the person you are. So I would much rather work on who I am and be happy with the decisions I make, what I choose to speak up about, what I choose to be vocal about and what I choose to put out there, because I would much rather that people know me as a person than as my last project."
Meanwhile, the 21-year-old actress previously admitted her life is "too stressful" to drink.
Writing on her blog, she shared: "Today I turn 21! Holla!!! But just because I'm now the legal drinking age, doesn't mean I'm going to start throwing 'em back. I don't plan to start drinking.
"My life is too stressful to need help with relaxing by having a cocktail. This industry is way too nuts for me to not be in control of myself and my decisions, so I just don't want to introduce drinking! Plus, I don’t want drinking to become a vice. Why try something if you don’t need it?! (sic)"
