But before she was Nicki Minaj, she was Onika Maraj — just a normal girl attending P.S. 45 in Queens, New York. The video above, which surfaced on Reddit, shows young Onika discussing her hopes and dreams. And let us assure you: they do not involve wigs or Drake at all!

Real talk: there’s very little information about where this video comes from, but it sure seems like Nicki — even without that goofy Barbie voice.
