My mother is Greek and my father is Bulgarian. I am a first-generation American and native Los Angeleno. I was born and raised in Hollywood.

I would go to school and be American and then come home and be Greek.

The Greek side of me definitely loves a good meal, a lot of laughing, loud discussions.

I always wanted to sing. I didn't know how to do it. I didn't know how to make the singing thing happen.

Performing live actually thrills me. Just get me a stage, get me a mic, and I'm going to be happy.

As a woman, I feel women get the shaft all the time.

You've got to want to be married to the person you're married to.

Awareness is empowering.
