"I always get this message, or people always tell me that 'Oh, like you're so strong, I don't know how you do it', but I'm not given a choice… I'm also raising two kids in this," she added, "And sometimes in our lives we have to put our big girl panties on, and uh, get to it, and that's what I'm doing."
