Quotes from the news wire:
For me growing up ... I was the only person that looked like me, and it made us a very close-knit family. It also taught me empathy. Also ... I had a big head as a kid. I had a speech impediment. I had messed up teeth. My last name rhymes with funny things, and it was something that I got picked on a lot and ... it made me realize 'Hey, the only thing that matters is what the people that you love think about you.'.
