She also enjoys the movie "Where The Crawdads Sing," because she finds a special connection with the Marsh Girl. LaTasha says, "So many people targeted the Marsh Girl and made her an outcast, but they all ended up being in the wrong.

I like to embrace those who feel like they don't fit in and help them to learn to be comfortable with who they are."
