Of course there would be experiences that would be tough but when you set out to carve a path that nobody from your family has done then you know that it is going to be a tough route, it is an uphill task. Now when I look back I feel those hardships only make you stronger. There is no place for someone who is not emotionally or mentally strong in the showcase business.
I don’t think that there is any such experience as these experiences only have shaped me as a person that I am today so I cherish those.”
