There is simply one way to success, therefore the premise goes into South Korea. This belief can also be the key inspiring Nike’s new Simply Do It campaign in South Korea, that takes another view about how kids succeed today and encourages these to unleash their full potential.
In today’s Korea, children are taught that education is the best way to success. Visit school, do your research, obtain a career remain on path. Sameness can lead to stagnation, says South Korean football legend Young-Pyo Lee, who made his mark when he led his national team to the semifinals in the 2002 South Korea – Japan match, although they are told conformity is the only way.
Starting today, Korean teens possess a platform to voice their stories, and describe what sports method for them, their love for competition and the significance of achieving greatness.
I understand how hard it may be to concentrate on sport whenever you feel a great deal pressure to analyze extended hours to become great in class, says Lee. With my voice as well as others I really hope kids will demand their rights to experience.
