What Drives My Success: Tenacity

Tenacity. When it comes to things that I'm passionate about, my tenacity comes through...I did not take "no" for an answer. If I hit a wall or stumbling block I always find a way around it. If you put your mind to something, anything is possible.

I also shared Embrace's mission with Namu Kini's audience in 2013.

Chi Heng Foundation

Program Director

In about two years we were able to sponsor the education of about 3000 orphans whose parents had died of AIDS. But the greater impact of our work was that the government began providing education and free AIDS medication to all of the orphans in the affected areas.
