“I’ve always taken issue with people trying to place an image on what a young girl could be. Early on I told my parents that I was going to decide that for myself.”

“We can pull down the fake wallpaper, break the mirror that has been lying to us and making [us] believe that we need to be perfect,” she says. “We don’t need to be perfect to be respected.”

 

“I knew I wanted to embrace all me. The good, the bad, the complicated, the humble, the cocky, the many dimensions of who I was.”
