My name is Kanda, I'm a musician and a model.

 

My goal is always to be the most authentic in my music because it sets people free in their most authentic way.

 

Because I'm a black, queer, fat woman in 2018, everything that I do reaches out to people who didn't have that sort of representation before me.

 

I spent a lot of my life feeling really guilty for being a first generation African girl around a whole bunch of people who didn't understand me and I felt guilty about who I was. I would like for no one else to feel that way.

 

I am strong, vulnerable. I am often scared. I am an overcomer of fear.

 

I will set the world on fire by being myself.
