It became my new passion and filled me with happiness. The most memorable moment was the unexpected rise, quickly to a junior black belt, jumping ranks as I excelled along the way, gaining the values of respect, courtesy, integrity, perseverance, self-control and an indomitable spirit, but the most significant change and gain was the confidence and the self-esteem I so needed.”
