 “I Don’t waste energy on things you can’t change.’ Oprah told me that one day when we were having a conversation about my weird fear of being tall—I’m already 5’4″! Instead of putting negative energy out into the universe about something that’s set in stone, like my height, she said I should turn that energy into something positive and use it to make my dreams come true. So if I end up being 7 feet, then I’ll be 7 feet.”

“If you think about it, all of us minorities combined, we are the majority. We’re not the minority. And if we start looking at things that way, the things are going to start changing. It’s not about exclusion; it’s about explaining what’s been going on in history for years, and how we’ve been failing each other by not being open with these conversations and demanding representation.”  Teen Vogue Magazine

“As a teenager I was super awkward. I never felt comfortable in my body or with how I looked. People were nasty. People would say  that I looked like a man or something called a buttaface. Potato head was a term that everyone used a lot and basically made fun of the way I looked. For years I thought maybe I can get plastic surgery. If I change my face, if I get really skinny,  then that will be it, that will be the answer. IT’S NOT!  My sister Tullah was in rehab and I was really inspired because she didn’t try to hide from it. She owned it. She was in the mindset of saying, ‘here are my flaws and it’s okay. I’m still me and I’m still beautiful and it doesn’t matter.’ I just realized that I could feel the same way and I need to stop listening to the bullies. No matter what you look like, no matter where you’re from, you’re completely deserving of love and value.” Dancing With The Stars
