Naya Rivera (Santana Lopez) plays such a confident badass on Glee, it’s hard to imagine she ever struggled with self doubt. But things weren’t always so easy for the mixed-race beauty.

On MTV’s This Is How I Made It, Naya opens up about her struggles with casting directors, getting shut down, and why she almost quit acting and singing altogether.

There’s always going to be people saying that you can’t do it. Even when you think it’s done, if you are truly meant to be doing what you’re doing and you believe enough in your talent, giving it another shot, it can’t hurt, why not?” Naya tells MTV on the show.

Her episode airs on Saturday, October 27 at 12 PM ET/PT and also shows Chris Brown telling his story. Will you watch it?
