When she was 18, she competed on "So You Think You Can Dance." She said, "The experience happened four days after I graduated from high school. I was 18 and I don't think I had any idea what I was getting into." She added, "In retrospect, I look back and think, "How the hell did I do that?" I honestly don't know if I could do that now being 21. Doing it really matured me -- being on the road, dealing with finances, making sure I was healthy; it's undoubtedly why I feel like I can handle L.A., get the good and bad news and not lose my sanity."
Jeanine Mason has appeared in a variety of other projects, including gigs on "NCIS: LA," "Awkward" and the film "Default." In ten years, she hopes to have a successful film career. "Eventually, I want to have my own production company."
Apparently, she and her sister Alexis are the inspirations behind PeaceLoveWorld's dance-wear line "Love2Dance." Not just a pretty face, Jeanine graduated from UCLA in 2014.
As for being Cuban-American in Hollywood, Jeanine Mason said, "Anywhere I go, I’m carrying my culture on my shoulders. I’m a product of my hometown and my ethnicity, especially because of the vibrant Cuban community in Miami. So for me, it’s about finding pride in the fact that I’m a Cuban-American actor on the set. And I feel a real responsibility to do the best that I can do and inspire people."
