Quotes

"I write a lot of songs that are inspired by social causes that I believe in. Especially women and just women's rights and women's bodily autonomy, and things like that because I find that so often women are underrated and not viewed in the way that I view women which is just absolute superheroes."

"I've found that my audience resonates when I am just almost painfully vulnerable"

"Social media has empowered every single human being to feel like they can say anything"

"Everyone is human. Sometimes we just need a little bit of love and a little bit of empathy."

"I don't think anyone should have to come out. I just think we should be able to be who we are and who we love without a whole, big blah around it."

"I don't need to label myself and I don't need to feel like I'm coming out or anything like that, but that's enough for me to be able to say that and that in and of itself is really brave."

"A couple people have said that it sparked really important conversations with their children. They've played the song for their kids and been like 'Let's talk about what this means and what love can look like, because it can look like so many different things' "

"It's our obligation to the next generation and to kids, to support them and show up for them and create safe spaces for them."

"It's so cool to see little girls look up to somebody who looks like them"

"Especially as white people. we've had that sort of the norm and it's expected and I can't really imagine what it would feel like to be a little girl and look up at all the princesses and be like but none of them look like me."

"They have to unapologetically love themselves."

"I think it's so important as humans that we find love for ourselves internally and sort of be a tree in the middle of a hurricane"

"It's so important to just realize that you are so worthy of loving yourself. Exactly who you are. You were born, correct. whatever you feel that is who you're meant to be."

"You are absolutely worthy of love for exactly who you are."

"If you are born and you're like, 'I know that I love people that are the same gender as me.' That's right. If you're born with one physical attribute and you're like, 'that doesn't match who I know I am', you're right."

"The imposter syndrome is really real and it's just difficult."

"I feel like sometimes I put my heart and soul into things that I believe in, so strongly and I call them the dudes in suits, which is the industry. it doesn't feel like really, sometimes I can get them on my side"

"I think kindness is not only letting people be whoever they are but loving them for it."

"I see you for who you are, I accept you for who you are and I love you for who you are because I think we all deserve more love."
