After graduating high school, the actress juggled college courses and her budding Disney career – and she wouldn't have it any other way.
"I have nine classes left to graduate," she now shares. "I’m a communications major /international relations minor at UCLA. I had to take the last quarter off because of Descendants 2, but I’ll be back in January working on it. I don’t know exactly when I’ll be getting my degree, I don’t think it will happen next year. I will be so happy the day that happens because school is such a big part of who I am. I was always a big nerd growing up and I’m lucky was able to give me an education like this and it’s so important to me. I’m excited to get that diploma and wear the robes."
