I handle my business and I speak up for myself. But if I was not like this, so many people would have taken advantage of me. What people don’t understand is that when I was doing this, I took a lot of shit from men; men who didn’t want me to realize my own worth and who didn’t want me to know the truth about who I was and how good I was. I’m never going to let anyone pull me down or make me feel small. People try to make such a big deal when a woman tries to stand up for herself. Why?
“We didn’t have any paints in the house when I was younger, but I would do collage. I would collect advertisements, rip them up, and then paste them together. That was the beginning of it. After that, I did photography, and then painting and sculpting. I began to realise how important it is to express yourself, and not be afraid of making mistakes – as mistakes often make something special and unique.” — Lucy Liu
