Personal Quote:

I've heard that they think me bossy. I've heard I'm difficult to work with. I am bossy actually. I want to do it the way I want to do it. It's easy to tread on other people's toes without even knowing it. If you're me, it is anyway, evidently. They may think I'm bossy and upstaging, but I don't mean it. I'm just taking my role to the limit. See more »
