“I want to do this for as long as I can,” she said.

“The success I’ve had is more than I ever imagined was possible. To be really honest, I never thought I would get this far. Not because I didn’t think I could, but because I didn’t know something like this was possible.”

You have to try to beat your personal best and express yourself, because no matter how much you think you know, you are always coming up with better ways to explain yourself,” she continued.

Dua recently celebrated 365 days of doing this…
