On the most hurtful comments she receives on social media:

‘When people look at you and they’re like, ‘Oh, (you’re) dressing a certain way. You have to be covered up or else you’re a s~~~ of some sort,’ or whatever they want to call you. Whatever demeaning term they think fits you best.’

On being sexually abused as a child:

‘I was sexually abused and physically growing up from the day I can remember till I was 14..when I finally had the courage to lock my door at night and sit by it. All damn night. Waiting for someone to take advantage of my life again.’

On the reason why she dresses the way she does:

If someone says, like, ‘Why do you dress that way? Is it because something that happened when you were younger?’ And you’re like, ‘Oh, maybe it actually is. Hmm, that’s a good point.’ You know, it’s like kind of those small moments where you’re like ‘Oof, I wish that didn’t dig as deep as it did.’
