Sometimes even the strongest FIERCE feels like giving up. Sometimes, you won’t get the credit you feel like you deserve. Sometimes, you’re going to feel like all the hard work you’ve been putting into a project has been a waste because nobody has been around to pat you on the back or remind you what a good job you’ve been doing. I have nothing to lose… I always try the best that I can to move forward as The Fierce Walker.
“It’s especially hard being surrounded by individuals solely invested in connections based on your fame, nationality and what edition handbag you’re carrying. “
It took a lot of courage to challenge the status quo and be an Asian slaying outside of this city. I stop waiting around for other people to realize my value and start rewarding myself. I make sure that, even if the rest of the world can’t see what a good job i’ve been doing, i recognize it myself. It is very important to have a self-care and self-appreciation to everything that you do.

I fought so hard to be where I am right now. Being an Asian, It is always a double standard most especially in this city. I always remind myself that, i don’t have to solve my whole life by questioning everything. I just have to show up and try. Focus on the most immediate thing in front of me. I’ll figure out the rest along the way. This is my journey and I am happy that I am not just living it but also fighting for something I believe in.
