Liza Koshy

The first time I met Liza Koshy was on a girls’ trip with my friend America Ferrera in 2016. We were headed to Dallas to encourage college students to register to vote. Liza, who is from Texas, jumped headfirst into the trip. She’s a ball full of magnetic, magnificent energy. We were instantly sisters.

Liza brings a special vibrancy to everything she does, as you’ll see soon in Work It, a movie I’m producing about dance and the high school experience. Liza is an amazing dancer who’s on the most amazing trajectory: she’s someone people love already, often from her videos on YouTube or TikTok, but she’s also a self-starter, an entrepreneur, fiercely smart and an empathetic soul. Liza is very in touch with what’s happening in the world around her, and a visionary in terms of what people will relate to. There’s no limit to what she can accomplish and create. In five or 10 years, we’re going to be blown away—even more than we already are.

Keys is a Grammy-winning singer and a film producer
