1. Your message is valid, but you have to learn how to deliver it if you want people to listen.
2. You have to do you. You have to look after yourself.
3. Love the work. Be engaged with the work. That’s what shows.
4. There are different kinds of creativity and talents. Not everyone has the same gifts.
5. Part of the craft is just doing it, even if you don’t do anything with it or it doesn’t work out.
6. Not everyone will love you and that’s okay. Know who you are and that this is something you have to keep doing.
7. Everyone’s story deserves to be told. You never know who needs to hear it so they know they’re not alone.


Thank you so much for listening!
