Where has she been?
And so much more!
“Performance is a way of life!
I inhale reality and exhale entertainment. No one does this like me.
Im not painting a picture, that’s not real to me. What is real is tampering with your emotions.
I don't want you to see or hear me... I want you to feel me!
I want to tell a story. My story. The story that so many others have in common.
I’ve sold drugs. I’ve been kicked out of multiple schools. I’ve ran the street with blades in my mouth. I’ve been abused. I’ve been raped… This is the story of many.
I want to be their beacon. I want those people to understand that they have to hold on because there is so much to live for. I want to be their inspiration. I want to be their hope!”
