Getting rid of certain text from the body of an email using Python

I'm trying to parse the body of a forwarded email using the following Python code

import imapclient
import os
import pprint
import pyzmail
import email

#my email info
EMAIL_ADRESS = os.environ.get('DB_USER')
EMAIL_PASSWORD = os.environ.get('PYTHON_PASS')

#login to my email
imap0bj =  imapclient.IMAPClient('imap.gmail.com', ssl = True)
imap0bj.login(EMAIL_ADRESS, EMAIL_PASSWORD )
print("ok")


pprint.pprint(imap0bj.list_folders())
#Selecting my Inbox
imap0bj.select_folder('INBOX', readonly = True)

#Getting UIDs from Inbox
UIDs = imap0bj.search(['SUBJECT', 'Contact FB Applicant', 'ON', '16-Oct-2020'])
print(UIDs)


rawMessages = imap0bj.fetch(UIDs, ['BODY[]'])
message = pyzmail.PyzMessage.factory(rawMessages[9999][b'BODY[]'])

message.text_part != None
#Body of the email returned as a string
msg = message.text_part.get_payload().decode(message.text_part.charset)

print(msg)

imap0bj.logout()

This code outputs a string similar to this

   ---------- Forwarded message ---------
    From: Someone <Mail@mail.biz>
    Date: Wed, Oct 14, 2020 at 1:23 PM
    Subject: Fwd: 🌟 Contact FB Applicant🌟
    To: <mail@mail.com>
    
    
    
    
   ---------- Forwarded message ---------

    Subject: Fwd: 🌟 Contact FB Applicant🌟
    To: <mail@mail.com>
    
    
    The following applicant filled out the form via Facebook.  Contact
    immediately.
    
    Some Guy
    999999999999
    mail@mail.com

But I don't want the "Forwarded message" parts. I just want it from "The following applicant..." and onwards which is the info I care about. How do I get rid of the other stuff? I'd really appreciate the help. Thank you!
