“I really just want to encourage and inspire people to use their freedom in a positive way and in a way that is inspiring to other people. I want to continue to pass down the seeds of change within the world. I think that it can start with just one person. Just like a rumor can get carried on, so can inspiration. I just want to be that person that is always constantly aware of my many gifts and talents. I just want to be able to use them to the best of my ability and to never hold back. It’s up to me to help change the world, I cannot look at everybody else, I can only do what I can do. So, that’s what I want to do with my music, I want to inspire people creatively and artistically to be free.”

Christina Aguilera: “Don’t settle, and stay true to who you are as an artist. Follow the lead of people you trust, but remember why it is you do what you do.”
