“I clearly recall how my stepmother opposed my desire to pursue a profession in music when I was young.
I used to leap whenever the piano played, and whenever I tried to go to a practice, she would scream that they shouldn’t let me go, and then she would beat me severely because I probably hadn’t done my housework. She spoke said.
“She would discipline me, but I would still manage to get out and sing.” I started pursuing my profession in singing straight after high school since I love to sing. “I started the reality programs there, therefore I have never given up,” she continued.
