“One of the most important things I hold to heart is not compare yourself to other people. Do what you do, be good at what you’re good at because that’s the only thing you can focus on. You can look at other people and see what they’re doing and then do better than them but do not worry about them because that is pointless.”

“‘Be a cockroach.’ I think my mentor was trying to tell me to be resilient.”
“I was told that that failure is just a learning path, and to just continue what I want to pursue.”
“Don’t take yourself too seriously! For people who are constantly stressed out, or have a lot of responsibilities, keeping this mantra in mind can really help you to detach yourself from the situation and give you a new perspective.”
