"Neighbours really changed my life for the better in so, so many ways," she told the publication.
"I feel like at the age I was, 23, when I joined the show it has really shaped me into the person that I am today.
"I have overcome a lot, I have grown and I am proud of the way I live my life.
"It was really good to have that structure and now after three and a half years on that show I have decided it is time for me to continue challenging myself and create space to focus on my music and songwriting and more acting."

A former child star Bonnie, now 27, won Australia's Got Talent at just 12-years-old, and is keen to now turn her focus back to music, among other ventures.
"I do want to try different things, I don't want to stick with just one thing," she said.
"I am ready to spread my wings. I am ready to fly.
"First up it is going to be nice to get into the studio and write some songs and put them out there."
