Camila Cabello Says She 'Missed Out' As A Kid Because Of Her 'Crippling' Shyness

Camila Cabello says she is an introvert and sometimes gets overwhelmed from too much attention.

She revealed to People magazine she often "froze" in front of people and had to block everything to concentrate on her work. The 22-year-old star says, "I used to be cripplingly shy. I feel like even though I often pushed myself, I missed out on some life experiences, or didn’t enjoy them as much as I could’ve."

She adds that as a kid, she was "very introverted, introspective, in my own little world a lot," but because she had a "big imagination," she was able to "have fun by myself in my room." In public, though – like school – Camila admits she was "kind of invisible."

Looking back, Camila wishes she could tell her younger self, "Get out of your comfort zone more. You’re stronger than you think."

The singer’s come a long way in the confidence department since then. "Of course there’s been times growing up that I felt insecure about something physically," says Camila. "But I’ve always known someone’s personality is the most important and most attractive or unattractive quality."

Camila is one of the stars named as a "Beauty of the Year" in People magazine’s upcoming Most Beautiful Issue, due out April 26th.
