"I grew up in Roseville, Michigan. People called me Crys or C. I loved speech class! I worked at Baskin-Robbins. (I wanted to be) an actor! I was the captain of my dance team and also really enjoyed art. I was really quiet and people misjudged me thinking that meant I was overly confident. But in reality, the opposite was true. I went to prom with my boyfriend, but after the dance he left me at a party all by myself. It was awful! He was a stoic popular jock. He ended up breaking my heart for the next best thing. It was terrible! (…) I would tell (my 17-year-old self) that the real you is far more beautiful than any mask you can put on. Be yourself!”
