“So many people always try to help me carry my luggage and help me do things I can do myself. If I can do it myself, I'm going to do it myself. I'm not going to let other people do it for me, and I think that's a big part of where I came from. I'm not a real prissy girl.”
“At first, it was hard to sit down and read the things that people were saying. A lot of people would've worked their way up to this position, and would've gotten a thick skin over a few years' time. For me, though, all this happened in a few months.”
“All of us gave it all we've got, overcame a whole lot just being on the show, and learned a lot about ourselves. We're just normal people trying to do what we love and follow our dreams.”
