She further spoke about her big win and said, “Y’all…I…really don’t even know where to begin…lol when I got nominated I was soooo surprised and grateful but was like nah there’s no way I’m gonna actually win.. the nom was more than enough.. but God had a different plan for me…I’m still in shock!”
“I f*cking made Emmys history…that is HUGE and makes me extremely emotional,” she added. “To be a representation of a community that is so often overlooked and underappreciated brings me to tears…WOW! I am on such a high that I know will last for a long time…I think the biggest takeaway from this blessing is not allowing it to get to my head or too comfortable. This award motivates me to keep pushing myself beyond my limits.. to work even harder and become better than I was yesterday.”
