Alicia Keys


“I was building my life around this image of perfection, and it was really oppressive. I was clearly a woman who wanted to talk about truth and empowerment and strength, but when I really looked at myself, I realized that my whole life I’ve kind of been putting on a mask. The path to self-discovery is not a straight line. It’s zigzag. Finally in my early thirties, I moved back toward my true essence. I don’t have to fit in. None of us does. Our uniqueness isn’t a scar, but a beauty mark. I am strong and fierce and brave, no doubt. Yet I’m also someone who has found herself on the bathroom floor; boo-hooing. And I am learning to embrace all of it.” People Magazine
