On her Nickelodeon series, School of Rock, we see Jade Pettyjohn's character Summer really try to find her place in her band and discover where she belongs. In real life, Jade admires that about Summer, and is inspired by how she never gives up, but isn't about striving for total perfection. When TWIST asked the actress to share some of the best advice she's ever been given, Jade says it's all about not being afraid to be you.
"I have gotten a lot of advice on a lot of subjects, but I think something that has always stuck with me is to not be afraid to be different and make a fool out of yourself," Jade tells us exclusively. "I know that growing up we are all trying to be perfect or trying to be what people want us to be. But I am the happiest when I am not trying to impress people and I'm just living."
"So go on that roller coaster that scares you! Sing your song at an open mic! This life is yours. You might as well enjoy it…as you."
How inspiring is that?!
