Sometimes I check IMDb to try to figure out my own personal trivia, because I’ll have projects that are pending and I’m not really sure if people are reading it or not. I didn’t write any of that stuff about myself, I find it incredibly embarrassing. I’m an advocate and an activist, so sometimes I check to see how much that is showing up or if it’s all just fart jokes or whatever weird comment I said or faux pas I made. I’m usually looking up other people!
I really care about people. Not everybody gets how I grew up in my household, where you’re told you’re loved every day and hugged and how important this is. And that you can be anything you want to be. I’ve learned that you can do it all. It doesn’t take away from my acting or art to be an activist, and it doesn’t hurt my activism to be an artist. For me, it’s part of a well-rounded life.
Changes are not easy to bring about and it takes people bravely going into it and fighting for it. Collaborating is really the key. So often in the places where women have been able to rise, that opened up the door for other women to come through.
