Opportunity is the most valuable commodity on Earth

Chen Liangliang

“Most people only get the opportunity to pay their success forward to their children. I have the chance to pay it back to my parents. And that means the world to me.”

Soso Luningo

“I’ve always been a person who likes to adjust. 
Whatever the world throws at you, it's up to you how you handle it.
You can handle it that way or you can just whine that you don't have shoes and not go to school.
There’s always a solution, as long as you open your mind to it.”
