"We need to talk about these moments openly because they are harmful and they live on inside of us as shame," she concluded. "We need to share and be vocal when something makes up feel uncomfortable because if we don't, it will just continue. We are not objects or prizes. We are QUEENS."

"I am not a piece of meat that a men gets to utilize for his pleasure," she stated. "I'm an adult human being in a relationship with a man who treats me with love and respect."
