The 'Girls' hit-maker says she comes from a family of inspirational women, and credits her mother and her sister with helping her become the "best version" of herself.
In an interview with Instyle Mexico, she says, “I come from a family of inspirational women. My mother and sister have supported me through everything, and they always push me to be the best version of myself. I'm constantly inspired by how hard they work and the drive they have to live life to the fullest!”
Rita also acknowledged her own status as a role model, and says she wants to see the music industry become more inclusive, because she believes there are too many voices that have gone unheard.
“This is not just a time for the entertainment industry to change but for the whole world to start making changes to be more inclusive,” she adds.
