But as the luck would have it, an Oahu talent agent (Rachel Sutton, also the casting director for Moana) saw her at the charity competition and recommended that she audition for the role of Moana. 
They asked her to sing whatever she wanted, she chose to sing "I See the Light" from the movie "Tangled" and a few Hawaiian songs. She shared that she loved Hulu dancing and water sports, basically, that she was well connected with her roots.

- From baby time to now, I wanted to be a Disney princess and then I wanted to be a singer or an actress.
- I'm happy where I'm at, where I've been, and with everything I've gone through.
- I know being happy will only take me further in life, and I'd love to share this passion I have with others.
- I credit my singing to my mom because she didn’t give me a binky when I was a baby. I cried and screamed for the first six months - my mom would say four years of my life - and I developed wonderful lungs.
- My mom keeps me grounded and all that. She makes me do chores.
- I hope that all of you are inspired to maybe not journey across the ocean like Moana does, but to journey to find yourself.
- I'm not a perfect person. And my mom lets me know it
- [on her first tryst with acting] I wasn't used to that whole 'lights, camera, action' thing- I thought it was only for Beyoncé
