JORDYN CURET: I enjoy playing the ukulele and singing. I am a big fan of playing tennis. I am also starting to learn how to play the piano!
- Your show, Home Economics, just got picked up for Season 2! What do you love most about playing Shamiah, and if you could choose, what type of storyline would you like to see her take on?
