Girl Meets World

In addition to acting, Carpenter is a talented singer/songwriter signed to Hollywood Records. She released her debut song, "Can't Blame a Girl for Trying," in spring 2014 and will follow it with a full-length album in late 2014. In addition to singing and co-writing songs for that album, she is also learning to play the guitar and piano and has her eye on a set of drums.
Born May 11, 1999, Carpenter likes to spend time with her friends, watch movies, roller-skate and bicycle. She also likes to tap into her East Coast roots and sled whenever she gets the chance. She also loves to draw.
