Huy, aka Kai Kai, is another fan of perfectionism. He possesses a strong, warm and round voice. Before joining the class, he shared that he has been working with Britain colleagues so his voice is somewhat affected by British Accent. The main purpose is to learn more about American Accent and Intonation. He would love to know what it is and how to sound American.
Even though majoring in computer science, his English is far good compared to his peers. He said “English is the key element to my success. To promote and work well in an international company, English is a must despite your background of business or engineering.”
This is the final example performance of Kai Kai. Let us wish the best for him in his journey to be an outstanding programmer.
So I’d say the real gift isn’t talent, it’s the ability to work hard. And we tend to underestimate work and overestimate smarts. But in the end, work wins over smarts.
In fact, many successful people aren’t the smartest, they just work the hardest.
So how did I achieve some success and wealth? I just worked hard, many 60- to 80-hour weeks. And now I know I’m not alone. Thomas Stanley studied hundreds of millionaires, and he discovered most millionaires weren’t A students, didn’t score high on tests and teachers didn’t think they’d ever succeed. But they did succeed, because they worked hard.
So the good news is if you’re not the smartest, if you’re a C student, not an A student, the really good news is you can still succeed. Because the word “success” has two C’s and no A’s. You can still succeed as long as you work hard.
