"I struggle a lot with illness, and because my instrument and my livelihood is my body and voice, my self-esteem suffers every time I am ill. This is a clip of me trying to warm-up while being sick. I try to tell myself that it is resilience every time I sing and don't feel like I can and it is also resilience when I have the courage to speak up and say I don't feel like singing. I want to take ownership of my voice and how and when I use it."
