Bethany’s mom, Tammy, home-schooled both her and Brittney. When she was little, Bethany loved Neopets, her dollhouse, Rugrats, and Arthur. Bethany was really shy as a child, and her parents encouraged both her and her sister to start attending public school when Bethany was in third grade. She was scared at first, but over time, she made really good friends.

Bethany started middle school and wanted to make new friends, so she started doing cheerleading. But, soon after, Bethany started being home-schooled again. She then began taking dance lessons, singing lessons, and acting classes.
