Shimmering Star Spotlight: Bianca D’Ambrosio
Each month YAYOMG! selects a Shimmering Star to spotlight. Follow along as we shine a light on girls who represent kindness, positivity, empowerment, philanthropy, drive, and confidence. They’re sure to inspire you!
As we head into August, we’re also headed into back-to-school season, which is why we picked a Shimmering Star who loves reading just as much as we do – Bianca D’Ambrosio! Bianca is an actress and influencer who’s been making her dreams come true since she was just two years old!
Getting her start at such a young age, Bianca has grown up in the spotlight alongside her twin sister Chiara, who you know best as the D’Ambrosio Twins. You might recognize Bianca from her roles in Nicky, Ricky, Dicky, and Dawn, To the Beat: Back 2 School, and yA – she was even recently nominated for an Emmy! Lately, though, Bianca has discovered a love of being behind the camera and is working on writing her own scripts and dreams of directing a project of her own!
Outside of acting, Bianca and Chiara share a YouTube channel where they post reaction videos, trivia challenges, and lots of other super fun peeks into their lives as twin sisters. They are both super passionate about reading and even have their own book club where they connect their fans and followers with brand new reads through giveaways and social media posts.
Get to know Bianca D’Ambrosio as she chats about the women who inspire her, her love of reading, and finding herself behind the camera!
