Do you have any recommendations for young people who wish to pursue your profession?
First and foremost, this profession requires persistence and resilience. Because, getting somewhere, making a name for yourself is not as simple and easy as one can imagine. It is not possible to reap the fruits without years of hard work; therefore, after setting your goal, you must never give up. Also, remember that being curious is an important trait. You must continuously be eager to learn new things and improve yourself. Otherwise, you’ll make no progress. Our profession deals with entertainment business, therefore assuming all the phases will be fun-centered, will be wrong. You may be disappointed.
