I am so proud of being a Paralympian because I think the Games are a very good platform for disabled persons to perform themselves. Within the Paralympics movement, it’s not just talk about excellence; it’s not just talk about the competition. It’s also talk about the equality and how your world accepts those disabled people.
Whenever I see the Hong Kong flag is flying in the sky, not because of anybody else, because of my efforts, I think it’s the most proud time of my life.
I think the most important thing for your life is the way you interpret things. Having an optimistic point of view is so important – your life will be so bright.
When I had bone cancer, I was just 11 years old. I think my parents suffered a lot because they worried about my health, my life, so much. For me, it was quite bad feeling during the treatment. But I quite enjoyed staying in the hospital because so many kids played with me.
