She played volleyball, but ate pizza after the games with everyone else. As she grew older, she never gave up her love of pizza, eating a half a cheese pizza every day.

“I was bullied a lot at school but I never told my parents, I bottled it all up and never said anything about the hurtful comments kids made, they were pretty awful to me,” she said.
