HBO'S  Insecure launched a profile series that highlights incredible women doing incredible things, both personally and professionally. But much like Issa, we also want to share the side of their insecurities and how they continue to grapple with them, or conquer them.

How do you combat insecurity on the path to reaching peak self? Dealing with your insecurities is a work in progress.  For me I've done everything from reading books on empowerment and self-love, meditation, talking about how I feel about myself to my friends and family, and journaling but most importantly giving myself time to love every inch of myself.  I think time and self-acceptance is key.

Music has a way of bringing people together across the glove. Who are some of the most interesting people you’ve met through music? I've met people from all walks of life through DJ-ing. I've had the honor of meeting some of my role models and favorite artists, but some of my most memorable moments are when mothers reach out to me for their daughters, and teaching young girls how to DJ.  There's nothing like seeing the excitement in their eyes and hearing that they felt empowered to try something new.
