Sharing Personal Values of Courage and Happiness With as Wide Audience

Throughout the course of my life, I’ve run into many obstacles. But every time I found myself face-to-face with these obstacles, I was able to keep forging ahead without caving in.

I have worked tirelessly to keep pushing myself throughout my rugby life. I am only here now thanks to my fans, my family, and my friends who have helped me along the way. Before I knew it, what was once a personal dream has become greater than myself.

Although I will probably have to face many more obstacles in the future as well, I hope I can use my public platform to share my challenges and prove that “it is possible to make your dreams come true as long as you don’t give up”.

I hope that I can reach out to as many people as possible and that what I stand for both on and off the pitch can be an inspiration for someone to also feel like “I want to keep pushing forward too”. In order to do so, I will never give up on my dream, I will overcome any obstacle that may come my way, and I plan to keep pushing myself to take on new challenges. I hope I can continue to be the kind of rugby athlete that can make people smile and fill them with courage.
