Sitting on the big yellow couch across from her AwesomenessTV co-hosts, you would never guess that Gracie Dzienny is a ninja. But that’s what makes a ninja a ninja.

The 16-year-old actress from Toledo, Ohio is best known for her role as Amanda McKay on the popular kids show Supah Ninjas, now in its second season on Nickelodeon.

After winning a modeling competition for Loreal when she was 5 years old, Dzienny quickly proved she was a natural in front of the camera, landing commercials and other modeling jobs. With the poise and confidence of a movie star, her unmistakable talent and winning smile continue to open up doors for her in Hollywood.

Whether she’s decorating cupcakes or dishing out advice, Gracie shines on screen. Her down-to-earth personality and comedic charm sparkle on the YouTube talk show IMO, which she co-hosts with Audrey Whitby (from Disney Channel’s So Random!), Teala Dunn (from TBS’s Are We There Yet?), Bethany Mota (AKA YouTube’s MacBarbie07), Ciara Bravo (of Nickelodeon’s Big Time Rush) and Meaghan Dowling (known on Twitter as @TeenThings).

“I think one of the things people might not know is I’m probably one of the most opinionated,” Gracie joked in a recent interview with StayFamous.Net.

But opinion is exactly what IMO (which stands for In My Opinion) is all about. The web series delves into everything from celebrity gossip to issues facing teen girls, like bullying, relationships and self-esteem.

“My favorite episodes are the DIY episodes,” said Dzienny, who also recently started her own do-it-yourself series for AwesomenessTV called To DIY For. In her video tutorials, she shows viewers how to make a boutonniere, design your own personalized hot cocoa mug and even how to customize a pair of canvas flats.

“I also love when we talk about confidence. It’s one of my favorite topics,” she said. “I think it’s really important to talk about.”

Both To DIY For and IMO are currently available on the AwesomenessTV YouTube Channel, which was created by Hollywood TV and film producer Brian Robbins for tween and teen audiences.

“I think it’s really cool how we get to have an input, where on some other things you don’t really get to have a say,” Dzienny said. “On this show, we really do get to have an input and tell them what we’d like the design of the set to be, what topics we want to talk about and our favorite things that we want to share. So it’s really cool that we can express our opinions – IMO is pretty much all of us, which I love.”

The girls also encourage their viewers to interact with the show by commenting, subscribing and sharing their favorite episodes with their friends on social media.

“We’ve been able to have a few of the viewers on IMO and I would actually love to have more of the viewers on to get their opinions,” Dzienny said. “They really watch the show and really enjoy it and I think they would have some great things to say.”
