Dr. Kim’s Donation to the USTGS

Dr. Kim’s Message

In an interview with Soo Kon Kim, the President of the USTGS, Dr. Grandmaster Kim sat down to talk about what motivates her. She shared: “I rejoice in the lessons of pain and hurt. They give me strength and freedom. I love challenges. If anyone tells me that something is impossible for me to do, I roll up my sleeves and get to work! Impossible is NOT in my vocabulary.”

Kim also shared how her diverse background of life experiences all inform her outlook on life. From her troubled upbringing, to her accomplishments as a grandmaster, to her success as a U.S. businesswoman, to her passionate pursuit in motivating others, Dr. Kim’s story is deeply inspirational to those in the Taekwondo community as well as others throughout the world. Dr. Kim’s success should stand as an example to all to continue to persevere, never stop setting nor accomplishing your goals, and enjoy every day in the moment.
