One of the things that Jennie mentioned was how her mother's influence shaped her outlook on life and made her who she is today. Jennie said, "My mom always had this wish that I would experience not just my culture and my country back home, but also travel the world and be that person who is free everywhere I go."

Thanks to her mother's vision for her life, Jennie had the opportunity to study in New Zealand and broaden her horizons. Jennie also talked about her early life and how living in New Zealand inspired her to pursue a career as a K-pop artist.

She said, "I would constantly hurt myself during performances and lives compared to other girls. It was a just a stressful thing in my life. I'm like 'there we go, I fell again. I tripped over again.' I've realized that...even though I had the training days that was more about...I need to be good at dancing not how do I keep myself safe and healthy while I'm doing this."

Jennie added, "I feel like I've disappointed my fans at some point in my life where it seems like I wasn't giving my best. But...I haven't had the moment to say this, but I...I did not know how to control my body and use my body the way I should. Something like I just don't do well in heels."
