Personal Quote:

My grandmom started smoking when she was thirteen years old and she died of lung cancer at age fifty. And I watched her for months and months as the cancer spread from her lungs to her brain, when she, in fact, didn't even know who she was anymore. And ever since that day that she died, I vowed to myself that I would not smoke cigarettes. See more »

Trivia:

She was raised in Inglewood, California with her brother Devin, and attended Immaculate Heart High School, an all-girl, independent Catholic private school in Los Angeles. See more »
