Within months after reading the novel ‘The Hunger Games,’ I went from telling my mom that I could see myself as this character to actually getting the role. My mother reminds me that if I could manifest such an important role just because I wanted it so much, all of my dreams are possible.
'A Tree Grows in Brooklyn' by Betty Smith is one of my favorites. Even though it doesn't have any monsters or crazy fantasy in it, it's such a raw story, and I can really relate to the characters. I think it's a beautiful story.

I think ‘The Hunger Games’ has a really powerful message about survival, and sacrificing for the ones you love. It’s almost like a warning for us to not lose touch of our humanity. We live in a world in which we watch other’s misfortunes for entertainment.
I come from a very musical family. My dad taught me to play guitar. I play violin and drums as well. Violin, I started in elementary school. Drums actually came when I was in a program called ‘Rock Star,’ which was really awesome. We were doing a song by the Ramones, so I thought, ‘Why not play the drums?’
As a fan of the books, I feel fortunate to be part of ‘The Hunger Games’ family. It was an amazing experience; I am proud of the film and my performance. I want to thank all of my fans and the entire ‘Hunger Games’ community for their support and loyalty.
