KW: I’ve been working at this for a long time. There’s no real knowing in this business. The best thing to do is to stick with it and keep pursuing your dreams and do the best you can. I’ve worked very hard in the last few years and have been focused in a different way and I believe now, I was ready for this opportunity. Before I wasn’t emotionally mature as I needed to be. There’s a molding and growth that’s taking place during the journey, one that’s necessary to receive what you’re seeking and a lot of artist have to realize that.
