My message to the world
Believing in yourself and what you stand for is important in all aspects of life. Being able to establish self-motivation and self-affirmation is key to growing as an individual. Approach criticism with an open mind and continue to develop your craft in a way that always communicates your personal message.
You won't be where you currently are five months from now, you may find yourself in a different environment with a different mindset and this is something you should keep in mind when all seems lost.
