CS4U: In what was if any do you relate to your character Mindy?
Brady Reiter: “I relate to Mindy because we are both very fashionable and very girly at the same time. We both love the color pink and like Mindy, I am confident in myself.”
CS4U: Okay great, pink is my favorite color too! In your opinion, what is one thing a middle-schooler has to do before graduating and going to high school?
Brady Reiter: “Oh thats a tough one! I think going to the middle school dance is a must. The dance should be at the top of the list! That would probably be one of my favorite things about middle school — me and my friends got ready together and we had so much fun that night.”
CS4U: Do you think we can expect see a softer side to Mindy throughout the series?
Brady Reiter: “I think you are definitely going to see a little bit of a softer side of Mindy as the show goes on. Mindy will still always have a little bit of her guard up, but I think you are going to see more of her softer sides as the show goes on.”
CS4U: What is something you would want viewers to know about Mindy before watching the series?
Brady Reiter: “I think they should know that even though she is so mean, she definitely does have a softer side to her. I think there is more to her than you see at the beginning of the series — there’s so many adventures within 100 Things to Do Before High School, and I think you need to keep watching to see everything that happens to Mindy on a day-to-day basis.”
CS4U: What is some advice you would give to our readers that are trying to survive middle school?
Brady Reiter: “I think you just need to be yourself and be true to who you are. Even though Mindy is the popular girl at school, don’t worry about being that girl. In middle school, I think you are supposed to learn about who you are and the kind of people you are friends with, and I think you just need to embrace that.”
CS4U: Since our website is called CelebSecrets4U, do you have any secrets or a hidden talent that you can share with us?
Brady Reiter: “Uhh, yeah! I am really good at hula-hooping! I can’t do crazy tricks or anything like that, but I can seriously hula-hoop for like an hour.”
