Here is the book’s description from the Amazon website:
In Build Like an Ant: How My Mom Helped Me Become Valedictorian, DJ Chung gives you his mother’s stories and lessons that helped him become valedictorian of a large, competitive public high school and gain entry into Duke University. These lessons will provide you with a roadmap on how to gain the essential skills necessary to realize the ultimate goal of becoming valedictorian. Build Like an Ant will show you how a devoted mother’s wisdom can help you reach high goals during the ever increasingly competitive, stressful and pressure-filled time called, high school.
To Anyone With A Dream,
Becoming valedictorian was about more than just being the head of my class. It was about setting a huge goal for myself and committing to achieving it. Without my mother, I don’t know that I would have had the ambition to dream so big or the confidence to go for it. Thanks to Mama Chung, I have learned that any goal is achievable as long as you know how to approach it and have the right attitude.
I’ve realized how lucky I am to have a mother who supports and encourages me. I’ve realized too that her stories are relevant to many people and the lessons can be applied to any goal. That’s why I wrote this book.
Mama Chung’s sayings are just too good to go unrecorded! From “build like an ant” to “keep adding tools to your toolbox” to “don’t just stand in the kitchen,” my mother always knows the right thing to say to get me thinking and to get me moving.
I hope that reading my book inspires you to achieve your goals and gives you the tools you need to succeed.
Best of luck to you … and don’t forget to tell your mom “thanks!”
