    Default my body type and ...

    Please, can anybody tell me what she is saying at 0:47? It sounds like "...and how I was...", but I'm not sure.

    "That because of my body type and [...] I drew too much attention.”

    Please note that I'm not a teacher.

    OK, so what does "how I was" mean in this context?

    It means "how I was so sexy". That is, "and the fact that I was so sexy..."

    'How' is influenced in "How I" by the following 'I', like /'ha-waI/. I wouldn't have noticed it.
