The Euphoria actress went on to say that the phrase “gratitude” persistently ran throughout her thoughts contemplating the Covid-19 pandemic that noticed many losses.

“Make sure we hold onto our loved ones a little bit tighter. Make sure we call them, acknowledge them, tell them we love them. And take in moments like this.”
The star even gave a shout out to the “incredible” ladies in her life which have made a long-lasting affect.
“I would absolutely not be here if it weren’t for the incredible women who paved the way for me to be here. So, also extremely grateful for those women. This is very, very special. Thank you so, so much. I am incredibly grateful for this moment.”
