At some point, she sold candy to survive. Then, in 2015, she returned to school but studied Music Composition and Production. Interestingly, she graduated top of her class. Lastly, she took a makeup course when she turned 21.


After graduating, she tried her hand at music. She became a rapper and even released a few songs that catapulted her into fame.
