“My mom is why I’m sitting in front of you right now. She’s why I got a book instead of playing sports. She’s on a TV show when I’m stressed That’s why I want to see art without. She’s why I want to walk for hours at sunset, she’s why I’m passionate and sometimes too passionate. But if she’s not a Croatian, I’ll be tonight. I really think that many of these qualities that make me sitting in front of you won’t exist, “Road said on stage before continuing.
