It's funny the things that get you picked on as a kid. I was picked on for my hair, my skin, my voice. "I was weird because I could sing. Then I got jumped when I was 13. I was beaten up for being white. I grew up in Memphis, Tennessee, and it happened so fast. I got beaten up and had a big lump on my head and a black eye. "I want to say they broke a couple of my ribs because I remember, for six to eight weeks thinking, it's just a bruise but I think my ribs were broken. For a while, it changed me. It was hard to believe that my head could be any larger but yes - it makes you stronger."
