Favorite entertainer or public personality? Jessie J. She is so comfortable with who she is and isn’t someone who is afraid to be “imperfect,” and for me, that’s the kind of role model I needed growing up. Her voice is sick, she’s super genuine and honest, and she’s gorgeous on the inside out!

How has social media benefitted you? I started it to give me a platform to help people that are struggling with body image, self-esteem issues, LGBTQ, and bullying the way that I did for years. I had no one to reach out to, and I love helping people through their struggles by showing you can go through some hardships but they don’t have to hold you back.

Any shoutouts? My family, my friends, and honestly just all of the people who are supporting me and take the time to get to know what I’m about and appreciate me for who I am.
