"I [would] love [for] more people to know our culture, to know that I'm proud of my color. I'm proud of who I am.”
“I think there's a light at the end of the tunnel. And I think when people are patient, and when you're not expecting something, [it] just kind of hits you like, wham. That's what I love about [making rom-coms].”
