Camila Cabello has had a lot to say about her departure from Fifth Harmony, but the singer recently opened up about another topic: a love song inspired by her journey to the U.S.

On Wednesday, Cabello retweeted Glamour magazine’s post about her interview with her mother where the two talk about immigrating to America. In it, the “Bad Things” singer also talked about the possibility of creating a love song so others can relate to how far she has come.

In an interview, Cabello explained that she is writing about her and her mother’s move to the U.S. “I want to make a love song for immigrants. That word, immigrant, has such a negative connotation—I can just imagine all the little girls who have dreams of coming here and feel unwanted,” the 20-year-old said.

Cabello revealed that she wanted immigrants to be optimistic should they choose to immigrate. “It inspires me in my music to do my best to give [them] the light that I have. I want to be what people think of when they think of America—a person who, no matter what her first language was or what her religion is, can see her dreams come to life if she works hard enough,” she said.

When the pop star was 6 years old, she and her mother packed up a small bag with their belongings and left Mexico. Cabello, who was born in Cuba, was forced to leave her father behind to start a new life.

Now, a successful singer and new solo artist, Cabello has every intention of being successful despite any fears she may have. “I think the most important thing I’ve learned from my mom has been: You’re human if you have fear, but you can’t ever let it determine how hard you go at a situation,” she told the publication.

“If anything, it should make you go harder—go for it all the way,” she said.
