“I call it ‘The Three or Four P’s’ so the passion, the art form, that’s what gets me up in the morning and to drive me to do what I’m doing; the perseverance, the patience, and the persistence because in this industry I’ve been told it’s much more riskier than the stocks.” [5:28]


“That’s the key for me to be driven and motivated. Not just the passion for what I do but the passion for life and for people.” [7:46]


“Being complacent has no place in my world” [9:35]


“As a female I feel that we’ve been undermined time and time again and I feel we have to join hands. You know, we’re collaborators, we’re friends, we’re colleagues, and we need to support each other. We need to provide each other with platforms and opportunities. That’s what’s really really important.” [17:58]


“We need to have realistic role models and if women can see it then they feel they can be it so your onscreen reality can be your offscreen reality as well.” [28:48]


“I think if we think of things as being obstacles we’re gonna think we can’t get through it, we can’t do what we want to do in life and that’s gonna stop us right there. I think that if we really provide a supportive network for people and a place to go and to help and it starts with the young people in particular.” [37:40]
