This episode was very genuine and very authentic.Jasper lai realized that he prefers to entertain and make people happy rather than sticking to the normal or default way that people do to stand out.I have so many take aways in this episode. one of them was when he said that "you need to be genuine to your dreams, genuine to your goals, and genuine to yourself". "Be not just to be somebody well loved but be a somebody well respected as well. Don't seek for likes, but seek for respect because it will last longer in the run". Super cool!😊👍 And I loved the brand," to become the light of the world",as the host stated. it reminds me that there is HOPE☝️🥰. 👍👍 Thank you very much for creating this topic. Looking forward for more uplifting episodes. God bless!👍😊
