“I’m just here to change culture and do it as big as I can, proving that you can be a young creative and be taken seriously and do things the proper way on a larger scale. You don’t have always to sell yourself out.”
“One day people are going to realize we need something more substantial than the internet.”
“Too many voices can really get in the way of what you want to say. That’s been a big learning lesson for me, quieting all the noise and feeling confident in what I want to do.”
“Writing is so lonely and so torturous but it’s also so great. It’s the only time you don’t have any pressure and can be totally free and as wild as you want, if you can allow yourself to be.”
“I always try to stay very much in the present. It’s not easy but [I try] to not worry about the future or be resentful of the past.”
“I think Pride is a way to look at the people who have struggled to get us to where we are today, that’s probably the most important part.”
“I stay connected with the people I love and who I know love me.”
