What do you love most about yourself?
For me, I really love who I am, completely. I don’t think there’s any one thing that I feel the need to pick out that I love more than everything else. I feel like that’s always kind of looked down upon as an answer, ’cause people always seem to pick one little thing, but I think that people should say they love themselves completely. Like, all my little quirks and stuff, I wouldn’t change it.
Why do you find self-love so important?
I think because that’s where everything starts. People ask, “How are you so confident?” And, “How did you start doing this career and doing what you love?” And I think it starts with loving yourself first. If you don’t love yourself, nobody else is going to. How could anybody else? And you know, no matter what you want to do, you can’t help other people if you don’t even believe in your own self. I think everything starts with self-love and you becoming the person you want to be and doing whatever you want to do in life.
What’s your go to self-care ritual?
Oh my gosh, okay, chocolate first, for sure; my man, he always makes me feel better; and a nice bath bomb—a nice, lavender bath.
