“They’ve been getting a lot of attention, especially my mom, I think she has her own BuzzFeed post!

“If I was a parent, I would be jumping up and down. I don’t know what I’d be doing, but I’m just so grateful with how they are, they’ve been supporting me and believing in since day one, and I just can’t thank you guys enough,” she added.
