Mya's quotes

  • I'd like to be remembered as a good person, that gave as much as she could with what she had to give.
  • Clothing, hair and make-up are just reflective of how I am feeling at any given moment and that varies from day to day.
  • Being independent gives me freedom to creatively be great. Standing on your own doesn't always get major exposure or support, but because I make music from a pure place, I am more so excited and relieved that it actually gets out into the universe.
  • Best beauty tip... Work yourself from the inside out. Eat right, drink right, look right! Positive energy brings a certain glow, so think positive, choose positive, be positive & attract positiveness. It always shows up on the outside.
  • Guys will just go out and do something. Females will talk about it - a lot. I don't care if I break a nail. You have to be aggressive to get the same respect as the guys.
  • Art is the more spiritual side of education that really does saves lives and makes amazing individuals.
  • At an early age through the arts, I was fortunate to find an outlet to learn & apply, express myself, create, develop a positive image of myself, and a feel of importance, and significance to the world.
  • My favorite look would be a fresh, dewy face with a bronze, sun-kissed glow. It looks so tropical and reminds me of a place that feels like true home.
  • My music has always been important regardless of other projects. And in the past few years, it's been more important than ever before as the world hasn't even received the best of me yet.
  • The arts are statistically proven to increase independent thinking, creativity, discipline, balance, and academic improvement in children.
