My journey began with a single pencil. While traveling through India in 2006, I asked a boy begging on the streets, 'If you could have anything in the world, what would you want?' and he answered me with two words: 'A pencil.' Luckily, I had one in my pocket, and in the second it took me to give it to him, a defining dream was born.
Mental health isn't all of me, but it's a massive part of my journey and a massive part of my whole being.
If you're going through a hard time or if you've experienced a miscarriage, so many women have come up to me and said they went through the same thing, and they never wanted to talk about it, so I hope my journey can help you and that you can find God in my life.
The only urgency I feel is to keep on, at a slow pace, with my journey.
I enjoy being in the middle of my journey much more than being close to the end.
I believe that human beings are born first and given passports later. I'm really thankful for my journey. And it's a journey I didn't design.
I want to thank the audience of both the Telugu speaking states for standing by me throughout my journey.
I feel satisfied with my journey in the film industry.
The beauty of my journey is that it's always been pretty unpredictable, so stay tuned.
I do kind of marvel at my journey. But at the same time, I look back at a lot of the steps, and maybe not every step, but a lot of the steps, and since I was 12 or 13, I look at the people who helped me and the moments that were inspirational to me, and you can recall what my mindset and what my make-up was at that time to try and be the best.
