“Determined. Part of me likes the word and part of me feels uncomfortable when I hear it. I feel very aware that I’ve had to be tough to get to where I am. I’ve been trying to do good work in a language that isn’t my own. I guess that does make me determined, but it’s in my nature to want to do the best that I can. It also makes me feel safe, in a funny way, if I’m working hard; less lonely, somehow.”
