"There is nothing in life that is really exciting and incredible and life-changing that is easy. I remind myself that a lot. My children see how hard we're working, and they're proud. My daughter is always patting me on the shoulder when she hears me introduced as the director of The Washington Ballet. Our son always congratulates us—"I read the reviews. That's great, Mom. I loved the performance." Being a good role model is showing that even if it's really hard, if it's something you really want to do, people will be there to cheer you on and help you through it. It's not gonna be easy. And that's OK." –Julie Kent, artistic director of The Washington Ballet
