Some suggestions for you :

You're going to have to speak up for yourself - and I learned that after always being, for lack of a better word, crapped on.

Someday I would really love to do a talk show. That's something I've always been interested in. I like to talk, and I love to help people.

I'm usually the one who creates most of my work. I have a lot of different ideas that I want to do, so I'm always like, 'Get on it, girl.'

As a child actor, you experience a lot of depression and anxiety... Yes, I went through depression, and it was not comfortable. Yes, I struggle with anxiety and being paranoid, trying to figure out who I am.

I love being in the studio. Expressing myself that way is really cool.

I love my bubble skirt. I wear it with a belt and my shirt tucked in. Just like a t-shirt from Nordstrom's or something. And I wear this navy blue blazer with the sleeves crushed up. And I just feel like I'm such a cool girl when I walk out. I feel like, 'Yeah I'm cool, like a model.'

Not being happy really is my fear.

I think people should have fun. And don't get so down on yourself. Enjoy life and be the best person you can be.

I never try to be too sexy. People know when you're not comfortable and trying to be sexy.

I wasn't that into it or that knowledgeable of fashion until I started working on 'True Jackson.' I feel like it was my duty to learn more because people would feel that I should because I'm on the show. So definitely, that made me more involved with fashion, and now I'm a little fashion guru. It's totally out of control.

Real faith is when you believe in something that you can't see. When things are going really bad and you can still get up and say I believe that they're gonna get better, that there's a higher lesson to what I'm going through. It can be hard sometimes, and to turn it around like that, that's true faith.

I want to present a very strong and bold image, but with femininity. I love being sweet and salty all together.

I don't curl my hair. In fact, I don't know how to.

When people think of me initially, they remember me as 'Akeelah.' Sometimes it can be frustrating to be remembered at an age that you've outgrown.
