“I’m not a big buff guy. At lots of points in my life, either directly or indirectly, I’ve been judged for that. And when I lived in small town Duncan, I was the only Asian guy in the entire school. I just didn’t fit in or look the part. But if I had let other people tell me what I could do, I never would have flown a plane when I was 12 and explored my ambition to become a pilot. Never would have achieved bronze in wrestling or taken up curling, soccer, hockey, you name it. Don’t give up on something because other people don’t accept the way you look. As long as you put your hardest effort into it and people can see a difference, they don’t care what you look like. There are times when people will judge you, but take it with a grain of salt because there are 7 billion people on this planet; one person judging you isn’t the end of the world.”
