Hi, Rookies! 

Victoria Ruiz is the frontwoman of Downtown Boys. The Providence, Rhode Island-based protest-punk band makes music that is both radically confrontational and deeply personal. You can find their powerful new album, Cost of Living, here. We are so excited Victoria answered your questions about staying motivated, making friends, exploring your sexuality, and more.

Take it from here, Victoria!

If you have your own question that needs answering, please send it, along with your first name (or nickname or initials), city, and age, to [email protected], and write “Ask a Grown” in the subject line.
