I refuse to play the role of one woman. I represent multitudes and that makes people uncomfortable. Growing up, just because I didn’t fit certain stereotypes, I wasn’t very well accepted. Everything was so clique-ey, and I could never limit myself to one group. So I tried to be involved in all of them and it kind of blew up in my face. That’s when I realized I was a leader. I didn’t do well with following and I finally got the courage to say, “screw this” and really embrace my individuality and femininity to a point that unintentionally attracted more creatives and people I genuinely admired and enjoyed.
