"My motto is ‘Be Yourself, Always.’ When you are being yourself, you feel pride in who you are. True self expression gives you the feeling of honor and self respect. You feel worthwhile and have self esteem. It brings joy and makes you feel beautiful. You bring what you feel in your inner self to your outer self. Simply, self expression is the art of doing you. Self expression has no limits. You can be who you are no matter your age, race, orientation, identity, gender, financial status, class, disabilities or abilities. There is no right or wrong way to be yourself." .
