“I actually did try to bleach my skin when I was about, I think 14 or 15 years. even now I have patches on my back. My mum was cleaning my room and saw the cream that I used to mix with lemons. she wasn’t angry. It was more her disappointment. So I stopped but I was always insecure about being dark,” She said in the interview.
