The ballet needs to tell its own story in such a way it can be received without having to be translated into language.
When we play 'Angel of Death', it's actually a 2 and half minutes sing 'til our party starts. That song is pretty much been played traditionally in the end.
I find it next to impossible to remain politely silent when people prate to me about the glory of being given another chance to live happily ever after!
I have tried to be a leader. I have tried in my role of being one of the first women at Google, let alone the first woman to have a baby, to really try to set the tone that this is a great place to work for diversity reasons.
Laura Bush has the face of my mother when my mother was young. The face, the body, the voice. The first time I saw on TV Laura Bush, I got frozen because it was as if my mother was not dead. 'Oh, Mama,' I said, 'Mama.'
I studied engineering in the national university, the Universidad Autonoma, in San Ildefonso. There is art everywhere, murals on the walls. It's beautiful.
I have family members that are bipolar.
Anyone that has come to America past the age of eighteen will be able to understand when I say that you can never shake your accent.
I was always on set, I was always working, so my study was down to the bare minimum required. So I am one of the few who didn't study 'Lord of the Flies.'
I'm never just on the couch. Being busy is part of who I am. But it's hard juggling my family, my husband, balancing that time.

Sundays are for Dim Sum. While the rest of America goes to church, Sunday School, or NFL games, you can find Chinese people eating Cantonese food.
It's so important for girls to respect themselves and not put themselves down and say, 'Oh, my life is horrible,' and 'I'm not pretty enough.' How do you know? There's this energy people give off that people can be drawn to.
The only way you get that fat off is to eat less and exercise more.
There's nothing like taking two flights when you have a horrible hangover. It's bad when people can see actual alcohol seeping out of your disgusting pores.
