According to Madame Noire, the 22-year-old took to Instagram to explain that she spent most of her time at New York University feeling depressed as she “struggled to accept herself.” Continuing with her lengthy caption, Ryan stated that:

“There were times while in school where I didn’t want to exist anymore because I didn’t want to be gay.”

Luckily for her, her family gave her all the support she needed and accepted her without thinking twice. The NAACP-winner also showed her appreciation to the people in the Black queer community as their fights made it possible for her to live with her true identity.

Holly had to adjust to raising an autistic son — which translated to creating a meal plan that suited his nutrition needs.

The post, which has gathered some attention on social media, comes a year after Parade.com reported that her mother took her role as an “autism mom” seriously.

According to the site, the mother of four has been advocating for autism for two decades. In fact, she and her husband started the HollyRod Foundation in 1997 as a way to help and provide hope for those living with Parkinson’s disease and autism.

The “21 Jump Street” star has also been working hard to make sure her son, Rodney Jr., doesn’t feel unwelcome due to his autistic condition.

Even though she doesn’t talk deeply about her son’s condition, Holly told the outlet that “there’s a lot of fear out there” over vaccines and asked for “respectful conversations between pediatricians and parents.”

With her busy schedule, the actress has ensured that she takes breaks whenever necessary. USA Today revealed that anytime things got too heated in her home, she and Rodney would escape in their family car.

Holly has also taken to getting up at 5 a.m. to workout and have an hour to herself before the hustle of the day begins.
