As an entrepreneur and now professional sports team owner, I can tell you that the values and discipline my parents and teachers instilled in me growing up in Korea have been the principal sources of my strength. They have guided me through a constantly changing and challenging business world, whether in technology, healthcare, or sports.
“When I came to the United States over 40 years ago, I embraced my being an AAPI as an advantage; I did not see it as a barrier.”
Throughout my business career, I observed that the most successful people were the ones who wanted to learn, and that meant they sought out and listened to people with a diversity of backgrounds and viewpoints. It’s harder to learn from people who see things exactly like you do.
I’d like to leave you with three thoughts as we celebrate AAPI Heritage Month.
