"One of the best things I learned in my life is to value every single second equally. What I mean is that I won't value any moment any less than others." she says.
"We tend to think that reaching a goal is a feeling that will last forever. But it is not, it is momentary. Nothing is more powerful than to enjoy every single step of the journey."
