“My biggest hero is and always will be my mother. She has taught me about caring for others, working hard and working smart. Everything I know about being a mother comes from the examples she has shown. My mother has instilled confidence in my sister and me and taught us to always be grateful.”

When speaking on her work, Bey doesn’t want to be put into a box, just like what every artist needs to be great – freedom:

“I think defining art is a really personal thing. It makes me think of a Basquiat quote I read somewhere that said, ‘I don’t think about art when I’m working. I try to think about life.”

On being her own boss finally and good books for her young fans to engage in, Queen Bey liberated:

“I no longer have to work based on someone else’s expectations of pressure.”

“I would love for my younger fans to read What Will It Take to Make a Woman President? by Marianne Schnall. It’s a collection of interviews and essays by great women, including Maya Angelou, Gloria Steinem, and Melissa Etheridge. They will inspire you to become a better leader.”
