I admire Katharine Hepburn and Greta Garbo for their style and carefully choreographed iconoclasm.

I admire my grandmother and her sisters–all also iconoclasts in their own ways. 

I admire my sister; I know few people who authentically manifest themselves with the ferocity that she does.

I admire all the women, well-known and anonymous, who suffered and continue to suffer ridicule, threats of violence, and actual violence as they advocate for the status of women and their rights in a million different contexts across our world.

1) My Mom. She is an amazing woman who has beat the odds in many things in her life. She showed me what real strength is, what real love feels like.

 

2)Tia Torres from “Pitbulls and Parolees”. She has done so much for dogs with her rescue, and so much for the men she helps rehabilitate back into society. I her show is one of my favorites. Honestly, I wish I could be her when I grow up.

I’m a guitarist and “Mother Maybelle” Carter is a huge inspiration to me.
