This book was created and translated to share the life stories of Li Zong Yao. Li has spent more than 40 years working as a professional basketball coach and player. She has made great contributions to the sports of her country by nurturing many young basketball talents, including her daughter who achieved greatly in international basketball competitions; thus, fulfilling her dream for not being able to take part in international competitions. Li’s life stories are genuine and touching, which have inspired me to work hard and not giving up on my dreams. I hope her life stories will inspire you to go after and not giving up on your dreams too.
