“Aria has shot a commercial for a European brand that will be out in Europe and the US this month,” says mom Pam.

“The trip to South Africa was amazing,” says Aria. She was very happy because she got to meet her aunt and cousin.
“I went to an ostrich farm, petted an ostrich, sat on it, and sang lullabies until it fell asleep.”
Like a true star, Aria is preparing to start her sophomore year at The Epiphany School in Manhattan in September after passing her freshman year with flying colors.
“I’m a good student and I’m an A student because my name starts with the letter A,” she says.
Pam hopes she’ll get more roles in movies and commercials and more modeling gigs. I can’t cut it.
