"We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You playing small doesn't serve the world. There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We were born to manifest the glory that is within us. It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone. And as we let our light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others."
As he begins to speak about some of his influences, T. Mills also says that he is no rapper, but instead considers himself an artist. For those that don’t already know, his music is a blend of hip-hop and pop (hip-pop), making just the catchy blend. He shows us some of his favorite tattoos, one of which is the word “Patience” tattooed across his knuckles, claiming he has none. That makes two of us Mr. Mills!
