“Being on stage you get a surge of adrenaline, it’s just so exciting. It feels like a kind of extreme sport, maybe.” – Alice Go

“I always want more … It’s definitely a blessing and a curse, but it makes me work for more as well as love the things that I’m doing.”

“A lot of people are smart – there’s a lot of people who know what they’re talking about and have been through what you have. But when it comes down to it, you’re the person that needs to support you the most.”
