“There’s always that thing where you see people complain about their career and you know they haven’t worked hard enough. ‘Oh, we don’t get the opportunities,’ they tell me.
I went to class with you. You didn’t stay there the whole time, you didn’t go watch extra classes. I grew up working hard and never wanted to blame anybody if I couldn’t make it work. I work hard with pride and I want to be good at whatever I do.
My passion is kind of a pride-passion. I’ll outwork anyone. For me, you have to be really good to be proud of yourself. I’m honest with myself. I don’t settle. Same with anything, I work harder. I see what I want to be, and I won’t be happy until I get there.”
