"I’m gonna tell you a little bit about my story - i’m not an activist I haven’t changed the world, I’m here to just tell you my path, so that you hopefully can take away some of it because, I dont like being honest -this is the truth- I don’t like being honest with press and interviews I like being honest with you. directly. which is each and every one of you ‘cause I feel like I can. And i’m just gonna start with the basics, so i’m 21, and my mom had me when she was 16, and i’m from Texas, and she worked 4 jobs, and completely dedicated her life into making mine better, So to me, She IS the definition of a strong women and I love her so much because she taught me so much values, I have been acting my entire life, and I have known since first on Barney -you know that purple dinosaur- when I was 7 I wanted to be an actress and I wanted to live my dream, and when I was 11 I had a casting director telling me that I wasn’t strong enough to carry my own show, and i’m sure all of you have been told that you don’t have what it takes and that you may not be good enough or you don’t have enough people supporting you and you’re being told all of these things, and when..deep down it’s all you want to do you wanna be a part of something greatYOU wanna make something great. And 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. And it almost did for me. But there was my mom, right next to me, stronger than ever. And she said 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. She told me and taught me to turn the other cheek and let the critics be critics and let us just trust ourselves. You inspire me to be better, I’m surrounded by people who tell me what i’m supposed to be, you gotta be sexy, cute, you gotta be nice you gotta be all these things, they tell me what to wear how to look, what I should say, how should I say, until recently I have given into that pressure. I lost side of who I wasI listen to opinions of people. And I tried to change who I am. and i thought that others would accept me for it. And I realized that I don’t know how to be anything but myself. And all I really want you to know is that YOU ARE CHANGING THE WORLD. Please stay true to yourself. Please just remain who you are. And know that we have each others back. I’ve learned from my mistakes. I hope that I can inspire each and every one of you to trust yourselves. And to love and to be loved. And thank you for letting me to come up [on stage] to ramble. Be proud of yourselves. Thank you”
