Guam - A Guam starlet lands in Hollywood and is making her dreams a reality. Now on the big screen, one Guam native remembers her island roots.  For the last five months 13-year-old Pia Mia Perez has been living a life that most girls her age could only dream of.

Since arriving in Los Angeles California, Perez has been chasing her Hollywood dream of becoming a professional singer.  "And then my talent manager, she took me into the top agency and I sang for them and they liked me so they signed me. And since then I've done a Disney movie, and I've done a music video, and I did some print ads for Target, and so I've just been having a lot of fun out here," she proclaimed.

Pia Mia has so far gained a great deal of success including starring in a music video, which will be released this month as well as being given a singing role in an upcoming Walt Disney Studios movie, "Santa Buddies: The Search for Santa Paws".  She told KUAM News, "I ended up getting really lucky, and everyone out here loves that I'm from Guam. And they've never met anyone from Guam, so in the business I'm the first one from Guam."

This 13-year-old starlet says she will remain in Los Angeles indefinitely, but looks forward to coming home in the near future to visit friends and family.
