Up Close & Personal

When I look back at my life, I think of few major changes/events through the years...

Growing up in Hong Kong, a crowded city with over 7 million people, I simply learned to blend in. I wouldn't say that people have no originality or own identity, but you don't stand out unless you are a celebrity.

In a single-parent household, I learned to be strong and adapt quickly no matter what the situation might be. I did not grow up in a rich family; we did not have extra money to buy unnecessary things. We valued what we had and not asking for more (don't get me wrong, we wanted more).

To part with my mom and came to the US at age 16, it was definitely one of the hardest steps I made in my life... However, it was truly an eye-opening experience and opportunity for me. I chose to be in a different country and gain the knowledge. I would never have those opportunities if I stayed behind. I get to be who I want to be. I get to pursue what I love, which is Art.

Culture shock and language barrier were certainly the biggest adjustment for a teenager living in a new environment. But after years of schooling and working, I met many important people throughout the years who helped me to grow.

Life often throws crap at you, at the least expected time... I could either choose to dodge it or let the crap hit my face. From personal life to work life, there were many ups and downs. I do not regret anything that I have done or decisions I made. Each job offered me more knowledge and insight. Each friend offered me different strength to face the future.

After 26 years of working for other people, I finally realized and told myself - "I am capable" and "I am great at what I do". I reinvent myself and do what I love, finally.

I get to share my vision with others.

I get to capture those special moments in life.

I get to tell those stories through contents I create.

What have inspired you through the years? People? Events?

What is the one thing you said to yourself "I will do that someday" but "that someday" has never come?

Choose what you LOVE to do TODAY!

"Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about creating yourself." - George Bernard Shaw
