"When people criticise me, instead of putting my head down, it gives me energy to do even more.
I think I'm like wine. The older I get, the better I get.
Some things is made by destiny, yes, other things by hard work, but quality you don't learn. Quality you are born with.
Nothing is written in stone, as a career is an unpredictable journey.
I read all the time that people think I'm arrogant. They say I am cocky, a bad character. I had that from a young age. But when they meet me, they say, 'That image doesn't fit you.'
Anything that happens in your life was meant to happen. It is your destiny. I was destined to have the life I have now, and I can't have any regrets."
