Being Bob Marley’s son has done many things for me, in terms of having a career in music. I’m very proud of my music, and I’m very proud of where I’m from. People hear that I’m Bob Marley’s son, and they turn on my music to listen just out of curiosity.
I’m a great mother because of my intentions on being a great mother; I’m a good friend because I’m loyal; I’m a good daughter because I’ve hopefully made my mother proud; I’m a great human being because I accept that there’s a spiritual being underneath it all. I’ve always been a woman of faith.
I remember when my mother, Shyamala Harris, bought our first home. I was thirteen. She was so proud, and my sister and I were so excited. Millions of Americans know that feeling of walking through the front door of their own home for the first time – the feeling of reaching for opportunity and finding it.
I’m proud of my hard work. Working hard won’t always lead to the exact things we desire. There are many things I’ve wanted that I haven’t always gotten. But, I have a great satisfaction in the blessings from my mother and father, who instilled a great work ethic in me both personally and professionally.
