“I'm the first in my family to do a lot of things so I have to keep pushing no matter what because its necessary that I pave the way to success for my family. But, perhaps my biggest source of fuel is my mom. I've seen her overcome so many obstacles in her life in pursuit of her dreams.”

“Please stop flat-ironing your hair. You are beautiful as you are.
I cannot express to you how skinny you are right now, nor how little that matters.
