  1. Tell us about MTV Exit. "It's about spreading awareness on and helping end human trafficking and exploitation, which happen everywhere. Before I got involved, I wasn’t aware how widespread it was. Through MTV, a lot of celebrities are involved so a lot of people get to understand what’s going on."
  2. What can teen girls do to help fight human trafficking? "I think it's more about knowing not to easily trust people. A lot of girls want to be models so they just sign contracts. Make sure you know whom you're signing with, and check if the company is legit and has a good portfolio. Don't just, like, meet some random person that can put your life in danger. Also, tell your friends so they can stay as safe as you are."
  3. Being an MTV VJ takes guts. What’s the most daring thing you've ever done? "Speaking to a large crowd. I had stage fright when I was in school, but when I joined MTV, I was like, 'I have to talk to a lot of people.' I did the MTV World Stage last year in Malaysia, where there were 15,000 people. I was all, 'Okay, let's do this!' That went well."
  4. Who’s your dream interviewee? "Placebo but I don't know if I'll get to meet them any time soon. If I ever get to meet Justin Bieber (VJ Holly is a Belieber!), I'd ask him how he got so famous and how he gets so many girls crying at his concerts. He has that effect on people!"
  5. What are three things in your closet you can’t live without? "My handbag, belts, and plain black dresses."
