„It always happen that people think that she failed and she’s going to fail again. I would say in the end it didn’t really matter because once people get to meet you, and they see ok she didn’t fail because she’s just stupid that must be the first thing that people think or naive but then normally they have respect for your courage. And say wow, you quit your job and you did something and you found something else and it happens through failure that people become succesful. “
