Tara Hyacinth is not your ordinary teenager. She doesn’t go to school like most girls her age; she works like adults to put food on the table. And at 16 years old, Hya is the sole breadwinner of a family fractured by loss and adversity: She had to cope with her father passing away when she was much younger and had to deal with her mother abandoning her shortly after. She was then left in the care of her elderly grandmother along with her younger brother with special needs.
For Hya, her voice is her meal ticket. She sings at weddings, events and clubs and pays the bills along the way. In between shows, rehearsals and auditions, she attends workshops to further her training. There seems to be no resting period. Despite the hardship and having to deal with grown-up responsibilities at such a young age, Hya maintains an unwavering sense of innocence. And even without the fun and games in a typical childhood, she remains grateful and determined to make life better for her family. With that, Hya aspires to become a Broadway actress someday. After all she didn’t train to be a triple threat (Hya can sing, dance and act) to dream small.
When asked about her favorite Disney Princess, Hya is quick to answer Cinderella, the princess of choice for all the reasons you’d expect. Hya may be the girl with a humbler background in the I Dare to Dream house, but there’s a lot the other girls can learn from her.
