You know, on the road of life there are twists and turns, and I’ve always tried to be the one in control of my own life and the independence that comes with it, but part of that is giving back. Now I have your attention. I want to be someone others look up to, I want to influence others to go after their own ambitions like I did. So, I’m back to where my journey started. This is Eva-lution," she added.
