To no one`s surprise Lexy stole the show winning first place in multiple races. Lexy has always had a deep passion for music & an internal calling towards the performing arts.

One hot summer day while Lexy was lounging poolside on the rooftop of her uncle`s loft in Hollywood she caught the attention of a production company rep.
