My mother taught me that we all have the power to achieve our dreams. What I lacked was the courage.
I believe God has a plan. God has a direction for me. He may put me on a few detours, but the path with ultimately reveal itself. My job is to be a decent human being no matter how rocky the road gets.
I like to talk. I'm a terrible dancer. I love my hometown. I have freckles and oversized ears. I'm a geeks. I have tried not to hide who I am or what matters to me.
The greatest glory never comes from winning, but from rising each time you fall. A person is defined by what he chooses to do with his life, not by what happens to him.

I could have a degree in music and come on the show, and Simon could still say 'You stink'.
I'm religious. I think this is something God had planned for me.
I know that I've got big ears and a big forehead and that my hair sticks up. But I'm happy with myself. I'm not necessarily trying to win a beauty pageant here.
I'm really not that special. Really, I'm not. I was on a big TV show, but it was just a TV show.
