CHRISSIE FIT

Actress - Singer - Writer   

Tell us about yourself! What do you do? And what are you passionate about?

Hi! My name is Chrissie Fit and I'm an actress, singer, and writer. I've worked on Disney Channel (as CheeChee in Teen Beach Movie and Teen Beach 2) and was most recently a new Barden Bella in Pitch Perfect 2. I love creating and sharing love, confidence, and joy through the arts.

I work a lot with Young Storyteller Foundation. An organization that helps kids with literacy and confidence by mentoring them to write a five page play. That play is then acted out by professional actors at their Big Show. It's so magical to see kids light up when their words are acted out for the first time. I love kids and therefore, enjoy working with them the most.  

Describe a specific moment when you positively impacted the world (someone's life, the environment, animals, etc.) and how it made you feel.

I try to do something nice every day. I feel like even small things can make a big difference. I love spreading love and joy because it makes me feel loved and joyful. 

What future plans do you have to continue making a positive impact in the world?

I want to get even more involved with Young Storytellers and create a Biggest Show with some of the stars from Disney Channel. I want to use my platform to empower young Latinas. 

Recap a time someone has done a random act of kindness for you? 

Just yesterday my friend came to see a show I'm in and gave me some beautiful flowers. Her presence was gift enough but she went above and beyond to make me feel special. That's just an example of how a small act of kindness can mean so much. 

Who is your most inspiring #WorldChanger and why? 

There are a lot. But Malala Yousafzai is definitely one of the most inspirational. She's so young and so strong. She's making such a difference in the world and not letting hate or ignorance stop her from spreading hope and love. 

What advice do you have for someone who aspires to be a #WorldChanger?

Just do it! Even the smallest act of kindness makes a difference!
