Nguyen Hong Tu,

Kokoro Team

(Grade 8)

“It was really crazy because I’ve never seen this side of me coming out, and I’ve never seen myself being so warrior-like, and being so competitive into getting whatever I want: I need to be always learning and thinking fast, and always thinking about Kokoro and what I should do to improve Kokoro.

 

I need to learn about execution skills, about marketing, about the target audience, etc. and I put off my ego and went to these people that I barely even know […] to learn so that I can come back to apply to Kokoro.

 

And I think that is really meaningful, that how it really brought out this side of me to genuinely put all of my efforts into one thing and live in that moment”.
