  1. "If everything was perfect, you would never learn and you would never grow."

  3. "I come from a lineage of broken male-female relationships, abuse of power, and mistrust. Only when I saw that clearly was I able to resolve those conflicts in my own relationship. Connecting to the past and knowing our history makes us both bruised and beautiful."

  7. "I'm in a place of gratitude right now. I am accepting of who I am. I will continue to explore every inch of my soul and every part of my artistry. I want to learn more, teach more, and live in full. I've worked long and hard to be able to get to a place where I can choose to surround myself with what fulfills and inspires me."
  8. "I'm not really sure people know or understand what a feminist is, but it's very simple. It's someone who believes in equal rights for men and women."

  11. "If people in powerful positions continue to hire and cast only people who look like them, sound like them, come from the same neighborhoods they grew up in, they will never have a greater understanding of experiences different from their own."
  12. "Power means happiness, power means hard work and sacrifice."
  13. "I think it's healthy for a person to be nervous. It means you care - that you work hard and want to give a great performance. You just have to channel that nervous energy into the show."
  14. "When you love and accept yourself when you know who really cares about you, and when you learn from your mistakes, then you stop caring about what people who don't know you think."
  15. "Whenever I'm confused about something, I ask God to reveal the answers to my questions, and he does."
