She replied: “The most important advice my mom gave me was to be myself. I’m not here trying to replicate her, but I’m trying to shine as my own woman. In doing so I’ve learned how to be strong, how to be confident in myself and to embrace every single part of my being. So thank you, Mom, and thank you to everyone who came tonight and for supporting me. It means a lot to me.”
