In a brief advice to upcoming artists she said, “I’ve been through so many ups and downs and one thing I have learnt is that everyone’s time frame of how things will work out and how things work out is different. Don’t give up. I have been through so many ups and downs. By now I should have given up.” Clearly she didn’t.
