Aija took to Facebook to talk about her experience being rejected from the TV series. “I am person who lives life with their heart on their sleeve,” she wrote. “An opportunity to audition for The Voice came up and I thought, 'Why not?' I had always said that I would NEVER do one of these shows. But I’m a firm believer in saying 'Yes' when something rolls your way. If you say 'Yes,' something amazing could happen, but if you say 'No' you’ll never really know what could have been.”

She added, “Now I’m not going to sit here and tell you that my ego isn’t a bit bruised. Sure it is. But your ego is not a real thing. And isn’t that what life’s all about? Doing things that scare you? You progress when you allow yourself to be vulnerable and to be seen.”
