"I never dared to even think about it before—who’s got time to think when you gotta survive? But now I want to be an artist, pardon the expression, a real actress. I don’t care about the money and the fame, although I’m not knocking it, but like the man says, ‘Life’s not written on dollar bills,’ right? Since I came to New York, I feel I’m accepted, not as a freak, but as myself, whoever the hell that is. I’m kind of just finding out. You know, for the first time in a long time I feel that something good is going to come out of my life… and I’m beginning to think that the something good is me."
