“We just realized it’s better together rather than competing against each other.”
“There’s something that happens when you push towards something that you feel you are meant to be doing with as much energy and passion as you can. Things will just start happening.”
“By understanding other people’s creativity, I can understand myself even further.”
“Be honest with yourself and be able to adapt and evolve with the process.”
