"Years ago... I was thinking about what it is that enables great people to achieve excellence in their art. As I pondered, it became clear to me that anyone can become anything he or she sets their heart on being.

As I realized in that very special moment that I, too, could see the fulfillment of my deepest wish, I asked myself, "What would I like to make a stand for in this lifetime?""
