Since birth, I liked to have a story. It is our stories that makes us a protagonist, a hero, the main character.

It is my journey that has taught me all I know. It shaped me into an entrepreneur that I am. It shaped me into the woman I am.

From being a partner and adviser for Time Square Korean Department Stores and working as a Senior Account Executive for MailChannels and to opening a luxury distribution company, ARCH Lifestyle Trading Inc, my professional life has been nothing short of excitement.

However, it is my personal journey that taught me impossible does not exist. My journey isn't a normal one and it has its bruises, but it sure is interesting and filled with miracles.

Today I realized I am a...

"You're too fat."
"You don't know what you are doing."
"Prove me wrong."
"You are stupid."
"You are hopeless."

Salt and Light

My mom always used to say, "Be salt and light of this world." Lately, those words have stuck with me.

Everything I do, her words are whispering in my ear. Being the salt and light of this world is a metaphor that refers to the Bible verse Matthew 5:13-16.

He also asked me a second question, "What are...

I struggled all my life with accepting the beauty that was within me. Whenever I looked at my naked self, I used to see the curves I wish were thinner, firmer or rounder. Or the scars that are on my body and face, the bruises... all of the "I wishes."

Look at an item that is in front of you, whether it is a pen, your iPhone, or even a piece of paper.

Now turn that item to its side and look at it.

Does it look the same? Is it the same item?

Well, this is how I stepped...
