“I wanted my song, ‘I Am Beautiful’ to give other victims the strength and hope.” – @Anastasiamusic1 (Tulsa, Oklahoma)

By Jacqueline Jax– Host A.V.A Live Radio

Music Helps…
I discovered that music helped me in my dark days when I was being bullied at school. Music became my passion and is everything to me.

“I Am Beautiful”..
When I was being bullied I would write down what I was feeling. At that time my inner voice felt alone and worthless and with the help from my family and some staff members at school, they helped my inner voice become strong again. I wanted my song to give other victims the strength and hope.

Tulsa, Oklahoma …
Music is a big part of my city. A lot of great singers are from Oklahoma, such as Leon Russell, Carrie Underwood, Garth Brooks, David Cook, and others. One thing that i like to do that is music or non-music related is staying fit.

Social media…
I love social media because I get to communicate with my fans and share my mission with others.
Social media has made it possible for me to share my music with the world. Because of social media I got the attention of my producer and my distribution company.
