"I lost sight of who I was. I listened to opinions of people and I tried to change who I am because I thought that others would accept me for it. I realized I don't know have to be anything but myself. I'm surrounded by people who are supposed to guide me. Some of them have and others haven't. They pressure me. There's so much pressure. You got to be sexy. You got to be cute. You got to be nice. You got to be all these things. I'm sure you can all relate. You all have pressure that you have to deal with every day. I'm sure with school, with work, with friends, with parents, with family, with parents.

They tell me what to wear, how to look, what I should say, how I should be. Until recently, I had given into that pressure. I'm sure all of you haven't been told that you don't have what it takes and that you may not be good enough and you don't have enough people supporting you, and you're being told all of these things, when deep down it's all you want to do. You want to be a part of something great. You want to make something great.

It does more than knock the wind out of you. It crushes you when people try to tell you that you're not good enough. It almost did for me. The most important thing is to always trust in myself. If I'm doing something because I love it, I should do it because I love it and I believe I can do it. I'd be lying if I said that I had never tried to make myself better by giving in, because I have. The most important thing is that we learn and we continue to learn from each other. Please stay true to yourself. Please just remain who you are and know that we have each other's back. All of us have each other's back."
