“At a very young age, I had this belief in myself, which was, ‘Am I enough? Am I good enough?’” he said. “Over time, in order to feel I am enough, I had to achieve something. In order for me to feel that I was worthy, I had to succeed, I had to win. Only then would I feel I was enough.”
“When you start to realize that you already are enough, you already are. You always have been, and you always will be, no matter what,” he said. “That’s a beautiful place to start from, and I would love to tell little Derek that.”
Derek told Jennifer that he began dancing at age 10 or 11 when his mom “dragged” him to a dance class.
