Her advice to young women:
"There were periods of my life when a lot of people didn’t believe in me. [But] I still had faith in myself. I really had to ask myself life questions. Where do I see myself in five years? Create a ladder for yourself, and walk up the steps. Climb that ladder."
On watching other women flock after her husband:
"For me, I’m not a jealous person. That’s just not my thing. You have to have trust in your relationship."
