Take your broken heart, make it into art — that’s precisely whatC amila Cabello plans to do with some of her forthcoming work.

The departed Fifth Harmony member, who immigrated to the United States from Cuba as a child, reflects on her experiences with her mother, Sinuhe, in a new interview with GlamourShe says her next professional mission is to write a song that chronicles her often bumpy path to the United States, and says if that could somehow inspire little girls who are enduring what she once did, that would mean everything.

“Right now I’m in the process of writing about our whole journey,” she explains. “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. 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 adds.

Cabello also says that if she can impart one piece of advice on her fans, it’s to constantly battle against fear, even when that’s easier said than done.

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