"Music helps me. I was resilient when my dog died. My mom was so resilient when her dad died and because I admired the way she handled that, she showed me how to be resilient. Resilience is the ability to recover from something difficult quickly. I remember the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester where a bomb went off. She fell into depression. She eventually performed again, which was evidence of her resilience. The fans showed up too. "
