My Story


Hello,
For many years, I let negative beliefs about myself rule. Naturally, this led to a period of depression, ruined friendships, and misery at work, home, & really everywhere. The idea of loving myself felt foreign, even selfish. Until one day, I realized how completely destructive this had been and said ‘enough’.

I was born in Taiwan and when I was eleven years old, I experienced a car accident that changed my life trajectory. It was after school, I have just got out of school crossing the street like I always did but on the corner of the street, there was a car came towards me in high speed driving recklessly. I woke up in a hospital not remembering how I got there except the agony of my mother’s cry, my father’s look of desperation. I was wrapped in plasters from the waist down, I could not move. I was trapped. It was the day that completed changed the way I live my life as well as all those around me. The experience I had gone through was extremely painful.

Letting go of self-judgments were difficult and requires repeated practice. By letting go of my fear for judgments and the needs to compare myself with other people helped me in living a happier, more purposeful and fulfilled life. This is why I love what I do. I founded ELEVATE in 2018 as a way to spread this courage, enthusiasm, and passion to the rest of the world in hope that you too can find the confidence you need and experience life to its fullest.

To say I am all "butterflies, happiness and self-love" 100% of the time would be dishonest, but now compassion rules. I became passionate about helping those who are going through a major life transition to become, in a way, the master of their own mind, of their own body, of their own feelings - because this is where self-acceptance comes in.
