“I’m very proud of my skin and my face, and I have no problem not wearing makeup. I don’t wear makeup because I feel like I need to cover myself up or because I don’t feel confident. I wear makeup because it’s fun; it’s like painting on my face.”
“That’s the person I plan on being for a very long time: someone who stands up, someone who is an advocate for people, [even if it’s for] something that some people think is only hair.”
“I use my platform for more than just myself. Art is a reflection of human emotions. To neglect the political is to neglect what essentially is your job of storytelling. I would rather be known for the content of my character than for the project that I did.”
“It is important in this journey to remember that just because someone has inflicted hurt upon us, it does not give us the right to do the same. Body shaming and hurtful tactics will never get the job done.”
“I’ve always dressed, even when I was younger. My parents didn’t pick out my clothes or anything. They let me do that, which I think is an important thing because it allows kids to experiment and figure out what they like, even at a young age.”
