After toying with the hearts of Team Jake and Team Matty supporters for two seasons on MTV’s Awkward, Jenna Hamilton seems to be settling into her junior year — and her relationship with Matty — while actress Ashley Rickards is settling into being one of TV’s brightest young stars. With the show’s third season having premiered this week, BuzzFeed caught up with the super-smart actress —seriously, she’s a member of MENSA — and asked her to get personal by sharing some selfies and answering some hard-hitting questions, like what she’s searching for on Google and, most importantly, whether she’s a fan of puppies or kittens. Here’s what she had to say.
- BuzzFeed News looks at the fourth anniversary of Mark Duggan's death, an unarmed black man who was shot by police in north London. The shooting sparked England-wide riots in 2011.
