"I learned how to be comfortable in my own skin from my mom. She is that way, and so it was something I learned just by watching her. But it goes beyond that. Whatever I wanted to do, or try to do, my mom always supported it. From playing sports to getting my belly button pierced and everything in between. She just wanted us to be who we are."
