Impossible is Nothing:
“I initially joined the hurdles team to meet new friends, but later found my interest in the sport. I wasn’t naturally gifted in hurdling; other team mates were able to make a jump every three steps, but it was four steps for me. If I wanted to catch up with them, I could only practice, practice and practice some more; whether it was during my breaks or after school. There have been many times where I have stayed until the school gates were closing before I was willing to leave. For 6 years, I have not slacked off practicing. In 1996, I was finally allowed to represent my school’s hurdles team in a competition and I managed to win 2nd place. This was my lifetime’s first; changing something that was ‘impossible’ to ‘possible’.
After leaving the team, I feel that survival in the entertainment industry is harder than what I thought, though I have never given up with this belief: “Face everything with courage; don’t give up so easily and with hard work, you can hurdle over every obstacle.”
