“I feel very proud that I have survived as long as I am in this business. At this point in my life, I try to give myself more credit.

She continued: “finally you go,” Wait, I’m not going to lie. I’ve been doing this a long time. This is not an error. I worked hard to be here.’ And you know what? Congratulations to myself. Not in an arrogant way by any means. It’s like, ‘You’re doing well, the baby. Give yourself a break.'”
