    I made friends with these kids from a different school, and their basement is all painted by them. They showed me their blackbooks and I was like shhiit that's cool. So I came up with a name and a shitty tag, and I've been into it ever since.

    This other girl got into it because of the same kids, and we became friends and started a girls crew, and we've been recruiting more girls into the graff scene.

    when i first got into it, it was because of my uncle. he's only like 5 years older than me and one year he came down to visit for christmas and he was really into his graf and like he had a sketchbook full of all these pieces and stuff...this was when i was like 11 and i'd try to write...and it didn't work... so i stoped. but like everywhere i went when i'd see a piece i'd have to absorbe it.. then like last spring i meet this guy who was really into graf. and he'd take me painting and stuff...and i haven't stopped ever since.

    i hate kids who admit that they did it just cuz their friends did not becuz they wanted to and they saw their friends...but literally say that they are just following tools!!!!............
