We think it’s safe to say that Shay Mitchell is the envy of most girls, and boys, around the world. Not only is she gorgeous, but she’s got a big heart and we love her for that. Shay stars on one of the most popular shows on television, Pretty Little Liars, and because of that people think they know everything about her. Sure, we follow her on Twitter and drool over her pics on Instagram, but how much do we really know about this glamorous girl? Not too much, but don’t worry, we’ve got you covered.

Before getting cast on PLL Shay was a model! (OBV, look at her!) She even went to Bangkok for 3 months and spent 3 months in Hong Kong after that!
3. She was a sneaky teenager!
Shay told Complex, "I was the queen of sneaking out. My parents gave me the basement suite, so I had an easy time getting out from that window. One time, I had friends staying over and we went downtown and got into a club with fake I.D.s. We were there for 45 minutes and I was dancing with a guy when I felt a tap on my shoulder. I turned around and it was my dad. He was like, 'Can I have this dance?' We all walked out of the club like little ducklings." Oops!
4. Her first car was....
A VW convertible bug! We are extremely jealous right now. That car is so cute!
5. She's obsessed with pizza!

6. If you want to get with Shay, you have to make her laugh!

Shay LOVES Beyonce. Follow her on Instagram or Twitter and you will see pics of Shay at one of B's concerts or just praising the talented singer!
8. She's a lot like her PLL character!
Shay has a lot of the same qualities as Emily. She told Huffington Post Canada, I think I share her competitive side, for sure. I also share her loyalty to her friends. I would love to say that my friends would say the same thing, but I also think she's the one out of the group that the girls will come to just to have a shoulder to cry on or just to know that Emily is always there for them. She'd be the one that I would call and I'd like to say that I'm kind of like that with my friends."

10. She wanted to be a counselor in high school!
Shay is all about motivating and helping others. She told Seventeen, "When I was in high school, I wanted to be a counselor and I wanted to work with kids. I've been through the worst of high school. And I want to motivate people to live the best life that they can, because we're only here for one life." Love her!
