"You didn't fit into the company of Hawaii's great artists," an agent I recently ended a contract with wrote to me along with a full page of reasons why I wasn't good enough to work with him anyway. I share this not to gain your sympathy, but to show you some of the "mess" behind my "picture-perfect" Instagram feed. I could tell this man didn't believe in me from the beginning which is the main reason I decided to stop working with him, and after his nasty response I am so glad I did! I face a lot of critique on a regular basis but I try to only let that motivate me more. I am so thankful for all of your awesome support that encourages me to keep creating!
If you believe in yourself and you dedicate your life to your passions, you can turn your dreams into reality! Don't give up.
