"On getting involved, one of the things they asked me about was what my arts education meant to me. I started to contemplate that and it seemed like this vast array of color and enthusiasm that I would never be able to navigate. But then when I started to narrow it down a bit, I came to the obvious, and important conclusion, that without an arts education, I would not be the person I am today."
"Please hear me, Girl: The world has enough women who know how to do their hair. It needs women who know how to do hard and holy things."

"I will become what I deserve."
