Hailee Steinfeld kicked off the back-to-school season this past Monday (are we really talking about back to school already?) with Post-it® Brand at the “Make Your Dreams Stick with Post-it® Brand and Hailee Steinfeld” event in New York City, to inspire students to dream big this school year and #makeitstick.
The event included a performance by Hailee and an interactive Q&A with Hailee and Post-it® Brand Global Business Director, Remi Kent. Check out some quotes from Hailee about her goals, facing setbacks, upcoming projects and what inspires her.
Hailee Steinfeld on achieving her goals
“I feel like if you can put [your goals] out into the universe and work tirelessly to achieve [them], then you can do anything ….. you are 42% more likely to achieve your goals if you write them down and I find that to be true”
Hailee Steinfeld on inspiration
“I’ve been very, very lucky – I’ve had some incredible people around me my whole life that have inspired me and motivated me – if I can be that person for anyone else, then I consider that a huge honor”
Hailee Steinfeld on her current goals
“It has been a goal of mine to get out on the road this year so that is coming to life, which is exciting. I also love doing both acting and singing – as long as I can remain doing both, happy and healthy, then that’s my goal”
Hailee Steinfeld on facing setbacks
“Whatever it is that you’re doing, if it makes you happy, then nothing should come in the way of that – of course you will face setbacks, but it is important to stay positive and keep going”
Hailee Steinfeld on upcoming projects
“I am in the middle of a tour right now with Charlie Puth on the Voice Notes Tour, so that’s been very fun. We are just kinda getting started, so I will be doing that for the majority of my summer and then I have a film called Bumblee coming out around Christmas, which is a spinoff to Transformers”
