"I moved out here when I was 18, 19. Childhood was a little bit rough. My parents were not really around me a lot. I ended up being alone a lot, and that kind of hurt me a little bit. In some ways I was craving the attention from my family but I never really got it. When I moved out here and I had my daughter, I had a lot of issues with her dad. He was very controlling and physically too."
