In Safiyaa At The 2016 Critics' Choice Awards
"For me, it was so liberating to cut [my hair] and transform for a movie. Otherwise I would've kept my hair long until I was like, my mom's age because I love my long hair. But it's my security blanket. What I realized is that I rediscovered my beauty, and it does not live in my hair. It doesn't live in makeup and it doesn't live in clothes and it doesn't live in my weight. And I realized that health exists in mental strength and loving yourself."
