Choi on the key to success...
Never underestimate your abilities and the power that you have to do something amazing, but be aware that nothing ever gets simply handed to you. It is about endurance and hard work that needs to be put in, as well as curiosity and passion that will hone your skills, all the while having fun along the way.
