I have a lot of great memories from childhood. But I remember my mom dropped me off when I was a little kid at a school of performing arts in my hometown in Virginia. It’s called Spark and it was at a basement of this building, and I remember being kind of sad about it and scared like ‘I don’t wanna go!’ I think I was crying. But I ended up having a great time, I ended up going back to that camp for many, many years, and now, I support to that cause. I donate to that school, but I remember that to be kind of devastating, telling my mom, ‘Why are you taking me to this thing?’ But then, it ended up to be great. It was just Mother’s Day last Sunday and you know, I’m grateful for my mom for always putting me in those situations that she knew I would excel.
