She said a few words to the crowd that she almost failed in kindergarten. She was a quiet and peaceful child that her teachers were not ready to give her the first grade. After that, she got her voice. She motivated by saying that it does not matter from where a person is beginning with, but the depth of your imagination limits future possibilities.
Emcee Steve Harvey asked her for a bit of hosting advice, and she laughed and gave a reply to his question. She said that she pins her hair back so that her face becomes visible, and there is no problem in that.
