FAVORITE QUOTE:

“Well, it’s not enough to be talented. There’s a lot of talent out there, but it’s owned by lazy, stupid, or essentially boring people. You can’t just be talented: You have to be terribly smart and energetic and ruthless. You also have to become necessary to people, by working hard and well and bringing more than your bones and your skin to the project. Don’t just show up. Transform the work, yourself, and everybody around you. Be needed. Be interesting. Be something no one else can be–and consistently.” -Katharine Hepburn

BIG BREAK:

1. Getting the opportunity to work at Google/Youtube.

2. Working for Producer, Scott Rudin.

PAST REGRET:

Not going directly into a career that was more on par with her college degree.

SUCCESS HABITS:

Doesn’t let anything fall through the cracks because of her really strong work ethic.
