1. YOU NEED TO LOVE YOURSELF AND BE YOURSELF ONE HUNDRED PERCENT BEFORE YOU CAN ACTUALLY LOVE SOMEONE ELSE.
2. EVERYTHING AROUND ME INSPIRES AND INFLUENCES ME. MAINLY LOVE – FALLING IN IT, LOSING IT, LOVING IT AND HATING IT.
3. MUSIC HAS BEEN MY EVERYTHING SINCE DAY ONE. IT’S BEEN MY SHOULDER TO CRY ON, MY ROCK AND MY BEST FRIEND.
4. MY EARLIEST MEMORIES AS A CHILD ARE LISTENING TO BEATLES RECORDS, AND THEY ARE A BIG PART OF HOW I’VE LEARNED TO WRITE POP SONGS.
