Quotes from Margaret’s interview to keep in mind:

“I think you just have to be very clear about what’s important to you, not to let other people tell you, or determine what’s important to you.”

“Everything you did gets you to where you are today right now”

If you love what you’re doing, I’d say carry on.”
