As a Child

- As a child I was quiet. I wasn't a troublemaker. But I definitely, into the trouble. I defended myself very well, I was smart, I loved school up until like high school and I always loved music, loved, loved music. I was always a singer, my mom told me, when I was a little kid she said you would sing everywhere, would sing around the house, I would sing in the tub, whatever. I always wanted to know things, I was very inquisitive and very intuitive and just curious about life.
