On humble upbringings-
“I had a great childhood and have a great family. My siblings are awesome and no matter what happened financially we always made the best of it.”
On being in the Kitchen-
“I like cooking everything. I get on food blogs and save recipes and go back and make them. I make fried chicken, I’m in charge of the macaroni and cheese on holidays. I can make lasagnas and pastas – I’m a good cook!”
On fulfilling the dreams on her vision board-
“I had made a vision board in 2006 or 2007 after I graduated high school. In 2008 I found it. I looked at it and I could take everything off from the board.”
On breaking down boundaries-
“When people look at me, I genuinely think they don’t see me as anything other than Naya which is crazy and so cool. I feel like I’ve gotten to a place where I have transcended color lines and it’s a big testament to playing a lesbian character on TV because everyone’s so accepting of everything and I think that’s beautiful.”
