Alexa: (on advice to young upcoming actors/actresses) My biggest thing is I would say be patient. Times aren't always going to be easy. I'm so thankful for the path that I've had. It hasn't necessarily always been the easiest but it totally strengthened me.
Alexa: (on her family support) You know, um, my family has given up so much for me to be where I am right now. I'm the oldest of six kids and I started acting when I was four, so, it's such a sacrifice for everybody whenever I had to go out-of-town and do movies because my mom believed that a lot of actors in Hollywood that go down the wrong path – the reason for it was because they weren't surrounded by their core, their family.
Alexa: (on how diversity is increasing in Hollywood) Look at the actors that are coming up now, look at the shows that are on tv. There so much more multicultural. Not just for Hispanic but, you know, when Scandal first came out, it was so different because you had Kerry Washington doing a show with a female black woman being the lead and upfront on a major television show.

Alexa: I don't know what to say when I have a crush on somebody. I kind of lose my words. I really try to start a conversation, and I can't. It's horrible.
