If you had to get a tattoo right now, what would it be?

What’s your most-used emoji?
SD: Currently, it’s This emoji perfectly captures how I’m feeling 99 percent of the time. It’s giving, “I’m so happy I could cry!”
Talk about the moment you felt like you had "made it."
SD: I feel like often, as creators and perfectionists, it’s hard to fully reach an “I’ve made it” mindset. It’s always, “OK, I got to hear , now how do I get to hear?” I try to focus on reminding myself that I’mdoing a good job and that I’ve reached many milestones in my career so that I don’t become too hard on myself. I remind myself that I’ve made it when I am doing things that 3 year younger Savannah always dreamed of doing.
What’s your favorite color?
SD: I have a few! I love sage green and powder blue, but I’m also a neutral girly, loving all the shades of beige and neutral colors!
Tell us about the best meal you’ve ever had.
SD: This is so hard because I love food so much. One of my favorite places and memories is at the California Grill at The Contemporary Resort Hotel in Florida. My dad and I took a 24-hour trip on my birthday for a quick audition — this place is usually fully booked, but we were able to get a table, and the sushi and the vibes that evening were just unforgettable.
Who’s your celebrity crush?

Tell us about the first concert you ever attended.
SD: It was actually a Taylor Swift concert! It was her Speak Now Tour; I wasn’t even the biggest fan at the time but I remember going with my mom, grandma, and sister and just having the best time ever. It’s crazy to look back at the size of that concert compared to her show now — absolutely so huge and insane!
If you couldn’t be an influencer, what would your dream job be?
SD: To be so honest, a pilot! I think the concept of flying is so cool and mind-blowing, and I believe it would be thrilling to be a part of that.
What’s your No. 1 distraction?
SD: My phone... it has become a habit just to pick it up and start scrolling on all socials. It stimulates my brain and honestly helps a lot if I’m feeling anxious, but I really am trying to put my phone down more and stay present in the moment for longer!
