Anya said she thanked her parents for giving her advice that helped her avoid any negative interactions she had with her peers.
“I was very, very lucky with my parents because when I was bullied for my appearance, my mom used to say, ‘You look inside someone, you look inside someone,'” she shared on the show . “You don’t look at class, you don’t look at anything like that. You don’t look at what they do for a job. It’s just, ‘Do you like that person’s heart?’”
Anya added that she “wanted to give a big shout out to my mom for that [advice] because it was really helpful.”
