Layla Sola x Uptown Collective Q & A

On the heels of her "Shit Mixed Girls Say..." video Ms Layla Sola has nice 1 on 1 session Led Black from The Uptown Collective. Here's an excerpt from their convo as Layla shares some of her beliefs.

" I am my own Hero is a creed that I live life by.

It’s a struggle, and I think one of the best ways to remain steadfast is to live life with passion and to be true to your inner voice. I am my own hero means being someone you can respect and feel proud of no matter what happens. The series draws on the inner strength of its subjects.
