- “Be happy with being you. Love your flaws. Own your quirks. And know that you are just as perfect as anyone else, exactly as you are.”
- “Sometimes, people can be extraordinarily judgmental and closed-minded to anyone different or special, which is why it’s so hard for young people in this day and age to be comfortable enough in their own skin to not listen to the people picking on them.”
- “I’ve dreamed about doing music since I was three or four years old.”
- “Don’t ever doubt yourselves or waste a second of your life. It’s too short, and you’re too special.”
- “If I could, I would not do anything else. I’d just be in the studio for my whole life. I would never go to parties, events, and red carpets. I’d rather just be in the studio for the whole time. I don’t even care. Nobody has to know what I look like. I just want to make music.”
