I have three things that encompass my life: family, hard work, and passion
Family is one of the most predominant aspects of my life. The bond of a family is one of the most beautiful things the world has to offer. A major piece that pulled me into CCM is the family mentality that everyone has, not just alongside each other, but with clients as well.
Hard work is something I learned at a young age to be crucial to success. To be in the position I am, I owe all the gratitude to my grandmother who struggled and faced numerous hardships to travel from South Korea to the United States during her early childhood. At a young age, I was able to understand what it means to “give it your all.” I strive each day to be as strong as she was.
Lastly, passion is something that should be encompassed in everything. Each day I pour my passion into my work, hobbies, and aspirations, and especially the relationships I build as I navigate through life.
