Wallis says she’s always be a fan of reading, “It’s something I would want everyone to do, especially teenagers my age. I don’t think we read as much as we should.”

The adorable teenager was most recently seen in Beyoncé‘s visual album Lemonade. She also hit the red carpet with the superstar at the 2016 MTV Video Music Awards.
