The young American took advantage of her platform to talk against the racial discrimination that looks to be still rampant in her country.
“What is going on right now is absolutely insane. I totally standby everyone who is protesting and trying to spread awareness.
I am trying to send a message, our system is broken, and racial injustice still exists and that’s crazy. We shouldn’t be living in a world like that. So I thought to send a message and do my part because this is important.”
