 “I don’t have any issues about my identity,” she adds. “I relate to every side of both sides of my family. I’m Jewish; I’m African-American; I’m Irish; I’m Scottish; I’m Polish; you know, there are so many things. I wasn’t brought up to distinguish. I was brought up to celebrate those things and I think that other people think that I should be settling into one way or another.”
