Don't let people qualify you based on environments that are not connected to your PASSION. Tell them if they really want to see what you've got to put you where your HEART IS! You'll show them exactly what your made of.
SIDE NOTE: Stop running behind and accepting opportunities that only spotlight your "lower self" or your minor abilities. Many people only do that as a way to accommodate you and devalue you at the same time.
RAISE YOUR SELF PRIORITY!
