Bada tells students to follow their dreams



Singer Bada, former member of ‘90s girl group S.E.S., talked to middle school students at Chungnam National University in Daejeon on Wednesday during a speaking event sponsored by Samsung Group.
She emphasized that courage and passion are the strongest things in the world, and the students agreed with her with a great applause.
“My family had a hard time financially when I was in middle school, and I almost did not have tuition to pay for school,” said Bada.
“However, I never gave up on my dream, and it did come true. Don’t blame your environment, but try to think more about what you are going to do to make your dreams come true.”
The talk is the part of a summer program by Samsung for 4,700 middle school students from low-income families.
“Now I’m trying to make another dream come true, which is to help others who listen to my song find their own dreams,” said the singer.
