“This isn’t something that I was forced into and it really has been a passion of mine, and I think that’s the key to finding acceptance in the rejection. If you really want something, you’re going to have rejection no matter what aspect of life you’re living and what career you have, there’s going to be rejection, and you have to just say ‘OK, that’s part of it. That’s part of the territory, it comes along with the job.’” 10:12
