I was really used to being like the kid and then I realized that I’m the adult, I’m the responsible party here, like it’s up to me if I see something that’s happening that’s inappropriate, it’s up to me to say something.”
“It’s up to me to protect these women or girls who are younger than I am and teach them how to protect themselves,” the continued. “That’s how I see my job now.”
