“I feel being original and discovering your own true essence is truly important. Love what you create. Imagination is the only knowledge and when we listen to our heart, we have access to that knowledge. When we do that, everything falls into place. It’s not about how well it pays or not. It’s about you loving what you do and expressing yourself.”
