"I handle my business, and also, I speak up for myself. But If I was not like this, so many people would have taken advantage of me. When I was doing this, I took a lot of shit from people, from men, who didn’t want me to realize my own worth, who didn’t want me to know the truth about who I was and how good I was. I always felt like I’m never gonna let anyone pull me down, make me feel small. I’m never gonna make a man do that."
