Vox has displayed she is not only a major talent, but also a beautiful spirit.
She spoke with NewNowNext earlier this year and stressed that even though she had been the target of some online abuse, over her body type and for being a member of the LGBTQ community, she was grateful for all the love she received and had an uplifting message for others who are the victims of bullying.
“In all of this, as I have received so much hate, I’ve also received so, so much love,” she said. “The one thing that I can say to people is that no matter how much hate you get, you have to realize that the love within yourself, that you need to have for yourself, is more than enough for you to continue on.”
