Hard work really does pay off.
"As a performer, there have been many times in which I have experienced failure. One in particular was in 2014 when I was competing at a singing competition and was unable to move to the next round, I was devastated.
My devastation caused me to work even harder, train more often, and really think about what I was doing while trying to fix my problems. Through that experience, I learned that hard work really does pay off."
