On what she's doing:
Right now I’m doing the modeling thing. I’ve always wanted to try out acting, but maybe in a couple years. I really believe in activism and I want to do bigger things.
On the artist that speaks to her:
John Lennon. I have his face tattooed on my arm, and the lyrics of 'Imagine' in his handwriting. It says, 'Imagine all the peace'.
On writing music:
I write music for myself. I use it as a way to get stuff out. It’s not something I see myself following career-wise. There are so many amazing artists in my family. If I were to do it as a career, it would change how I feel about music and I don’t want that to happen.
On the quality she takes from her father & how he inspires her:
Definitely his strength. He was the strongest person I know and tried to do everything with as much love and kindness as possible. All of my inspiration, I would say 99 percent of my inspiration, comes from him, because he has always been my world. He is my roots.
