ON THE STORY BEHIND HER EP:
“Play my Mind” came from when I was sitting on my computer playing games and my phone was beeping at the same time, thereby distracting me. I felt as if my mind was being played while I was playing the game, almost as if I was in my own GTA world. I felt as if I was ‘out of my mind’ which is in my vocals and lyrics in a melodic way.”
ON HER ACTIVISM:
“If young abuse victims don’t ever speak up, they will bottle up any emotions inside which will reflect on their actions and productivity”, declared Miss Scolaro who has been vocal about young abuse victims speaking up and ousting their predators irrespective of how influential they might be.
