In less than 2 hours, Paradise Hunter will announce the winner after an almost 6 month long worldwide search. I feel excited, almost relieved, very happy, a bit nervous and most of all, extremely thankful for this incredible journey!
12 months ago, when I left NBC to start on my own, I have never thought I would end up on Life magazine site, the largest news sites in China, meeting with billionaires for business opportunities and having a life changing experience with an incredible group of Paradise Hunters! 10 years ago, when I came from a 10x10 room in China with broken English, no money, no family to a country I didn’t know anyone, no one believed I can one day host a show in English. But today, I became top 10 and the only non native English speaker finalist in a global TV host contest. So DARE TO DREAM & ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE IF YOU DON’T GIVE UP!
THANK YOU SO MUCH to my friends and everyone-even we haven’t met yet for voting for me, sharing my story and your encouraging messages! Without you, it’s impossible! You inspired me to work harder everyday.
Congratulations to my fellow 9 outstanding finalists who made it to the top out of nearly 700 candidates from 29 countries: Asha, Ben, “Bond Girl Wales”, Carolyn, Dorothy, Jabari, Jade, Joshua, Ryan! I read your stories and you are so inspiring. Keep up the great work & stay in touch!
To one of the hardest working people I’ve met: Paradise Hunter President Dennis Kambeitz—thank you for this smart, amazing and inspiring opportunity!
For those who like to know about my learning through Paradise Hunter, please listen to ABC News Radio Friday 3/4 on my interview on how to create/find your dream job in a difficult economy. Thanks to the talented ABC Anchor Karen!
I have learned so much and received so many amazing opportunities that I feel like I have won: success is truly a journey. Please stay in touch for lots of exciting news/updates! BEST WISHES TO ALL MY FELLOW HUNTERS & FRIENDS! 谢谢 XIE XIE (Thanks in Chinese) to my family and friends in China who can’t read English =)
