‘Modern Family’ star Sarah Hyland lands the May 2015 cover story of Seventeen Magazine, looking ready for spring in the sunny outdoors shoot. Photographed by Yu Tsai, Sarah is all smiles in pretty pastel looks. In her interview, the actress talks about finding happiness, having health issues when she was younger and more.
Hyland on happiness:
“Happiness, I’ve learned, comes from within. I am happiest when I am doing something I love. And I love Modern Family – it’s the best job I’ve had in my 20 years as an actress. It didn’t come easily or fast or free: It took me 14 years to land a gig like this.”
Hyland on perseverance:
“I was born with so many health issues that doctors told my mother I would never have a normal life. And she said, ‘You’re right, she won’t – but it won’t be because of her health.’ When my mother told me that story, it resonated with me: If I can’t have an ordinary life, I might as well have an extraordinary one. If you set your mind to something, you’ll achieve it.”
Hyland on moving forward:
“When you’re feeling vulnerable, it can lead to doubt and second-guessing. It will steer you away from your goals and your happiness. Once you have a goal, keep moving forward – even if you’re taking baby steps!”
