Singer Jessica Betts said freedom is having liberty, not conforming and dreaming big without limitations during a recent interview with theGrio’s Jared Alexander. 

“I feel like being free is just being able to break off them shackles and chains and just feel like you could do anything,” Betts said. “Love is also freedom because with that and the power of love, I feel like you could accomplish and do anything you put your heart and mind to.”

In agreement with Betts, Nash said that she is a “living epistle” of that because she has allowed herself to do whatever she wants to do.

“I probably feel the most free in this moment in time than I’ve ever felt in my life because I’m unapologetically me,” Nash said.
