Her Life Before the Discovery of Self Confidence

For many years, Ming struggled to grasp the essence of self-confidence, and she suspects that she is not alone in this sentiment. She found herself in the realm of mediocrity during her teenage years—never the top achiever, but also not the one causing a ruckus.  Despite harboring many ideas and questions, a veil of shyness kept Ming from standing up and sharing her thoughts. She preferred lurking in the shadows, even finding solace in being unnoticed. However, this isn’t how things should be. Every individual is unique, and to make others see that, one must have faith in oneself.
