Congratulations, but the most important thing is that you do what you love to do, not how famous you are or how successful.
I wonder if Maaya compares herself too much with others. You shouldn't do that. It only leads to jealousy or cockiness. There will always be someone higher or lower than you.

I agree. I'm not comparing Yuming and Maaya, I just wanted to mention this issue, Yuming is an artist who has collaborated with Maaya, and Maaya is a fan of her.
