Maiara: Other shows Disney stars were all very nice and down to earth. I was almost surprised because sometimes you meet these people and they think they're better than everyone else because they act or something, and no one was acting like that.
Maiara: My parents [...] instilled in my head that education comes first, education's important, you always have to have something to fall back on. Which I completely agree with, especially when you're in a business that can kick you out whenever it's done with you.
Maiara: Definitely on a daily basis. I'm pretty used to people messing up my name and not knowing how to spell it. It just confuses everyone.
Maiara: There were definitely culture clashes that we had to go through. Like something as simple as sleeping over at a friend's house is more of a big deal to my mom just because it's not really that common to do that in Brazil.
Maiara: I get to work and it's constant laughter and jokes all day, and when we're really tired and we're ready to get home, there's always people with such high energy like Kyle Massey and Jason Dolley that keeps me going too.
Maiara: I had a really good time in school and thought the public education did really well for me.
Maiara: Meena has to find a way to make her parents happy and to fit into the American society, which is kind of a cool thing because there are many multicultural teenagers out there and people who do have difficulties trying to make their parents happy, but at the same time, be true to themselves and be able to accustom to daily American life.
