‘’ She’s probably one of the most grounding people I’ve ever been around. She’s showing me what being happy is about. I get in my head. I get into wanting more, which automatically gets you comparing yourself with other people. No matter where you are in your career, there’s always someone else who’s at a higher level than where you aspire to be at, so you beat yourself up because you’re not there — or you’re just happy with the journey. She really shows me the journey, which is great.’’
