The Power of Mentors

“I can say early on in my career, I had a mentor that helped me, Suzanne de Passe. I looked up to her and how diverse she was, having a career in music and television and film, and still carrying herself with grace and style. A lot of time, unfortunately, people have to do it on their own without having anybody there to guide you or hold your hand. You can’t really wait for a mentor. If you’re blessed to have a connection with someone, that’s great, but you’ve got to be independent and just go for it.”
