Ms. Namita Nayyar: You started at a very young age of four years by taking dancing lessons and reached the pinnacle of success by being youngest professional dancer on Dancing With The Stars at age of 19 years. What factors do you consider were responsible that made you achieve that?
Ms. Lindsay Arnold: There have been many factors that have gotten me to the point where I am today. I feel that the two most important factors have been a lot of dedicated hard work and determination. My journey to where I am today has not always been easy and at times I didn’t think it was going to be possible but that’s where I really had to be determined that I would not give up.
No matter what happened and no matter how many failures I had, I would not give up. This mindset didn’t only apply to dancing and my career but it applied to everything in my life. When I was in high school I would go to school for seven hours a day then go straight to dance practice for five more hours after that every day. I really had to be focused and work hard in order to maintain my schoolwork and keep up with my dance training. I couldn’t go hang out with my friends every night or do all the fun activities they did because I had to learn how to prioritize my life. Having to learn this at a young age has really helped me in my career.
