From the NY Times feature, Far Out on a Limb. "I know it sounds like a fairytale, but apart from the hardships of life, in terms of my decision, I have absolutely nothing to regret. It was the perfect example of turning something that wasn’t standard to a something I find strength in. This completes me. I work a lot with fashion – as a music artist, muse, fashion and bionic girl. I try to live my life as a futuristic woman."
