Karla’s interview with “The Dreamers” :
“I never ever consider giving up,” she states emphatically. “Sure, it gets hard when things go wrong… but things always work out in the end. I love what I do and I couldn’t see myself doing anything else, so I never think of giving up when I’ve worked so hard to get to where I am now. I don’t want to throw it all away … I’m motivated because I’m always learning something new and I have creative freedom. It’s so exciting.”
