Definition of Self Confidence

Self-confidence is believing that you can do what the other person can do and even better.

Her Life Before the Discovery of Self Confidence

Faith grew up in the Philippines and didn’t even own a TV until she was about 11 or 12 years old.  She lived in poverty but also had a happy life.  Back then she only knew what she knew when she grew up in the Philippines.  Anything that was a bonus for her was considered as gravy. 

The “AHA” Moment

Faith realized that there wasn’t a TV network in North America that was strictly showcasing Asian talent.  Her passion to create the ChimeTV fuelled her to make it happen when she dealt with a racist attack by telling her to go back to China.  She wanted everyone to stop treating the Asian American community as a monolith and wanted to create a solution by showcasing the diversity within Asian cultures.
