Simz shared how she was going through th loss with everyone who was following her story.

“Acting saved my life. I was at a point where I felt like, ‘what do I live for?’ It reminded me of what I am passionate about. It reminded me that the one thing I am passionate about gave me a reason to live… my passion saved my life.”
