Topic: I thought I couldn't...

There is always something that we thought we wouldn't be able to do at the beginning. For example, create an excellent artwork, dance a beautiful ballet, travel alone, cook a big meal, or finish a complicated project...

I am self-taught, it is my passion that inspires me to devote a lot of time. I love what I do, and just a few years ago I didn't know I would be able to learn it.

"I thought I couldn't do animation, but I decided to stop thinking and start to learn animation. In 2019, I created my own cartoon-popo. All it took was a little determination and willingness to take action."
