Around Oscars time in Hollywood each year, MOVIEGUIDE hosts the annual MOVIEGUIDE Awards Show, rewarding the best Christian and family-friendly movies and TV shows of the previous year. (For more information, please visit www.movieguideawards.com) .
At the Movie Guide Awards Dr. Tae Yun Kim, Grandmaster, stunned the red-carpet audience wearing a hot pink velvet and lace, Swarovski crystal embellished, TYK Fashions Couture evening dress.
But even more dazzling than Dr. Kim’s dress is her inspiring life story of overcoming challenges and obstacles that have led her from her birth in South Korea to become one of the world’s highest ranked female martial arts, the CEO of a Silicon Valley technology company, and a mentor, author, and keynote, motivational speaker.
Tae Yun Kim’s challenges started at her birth in South Korea, in 1946, when she was ostracized and cursed by her family and Korea for being a first-born daughter. Despite her family and culture calling her bad luck and a curse, Tae Yun Kim never gave up, instead living her person motto, “He can do, She can do, Why not me!”
Dr. Kim’s motto gave her strength through the Korean War, and through life after the war when she was determined to train in Martial arts – something forbidden at the time for girls to do. Through all the challenges and discrimination Dr. Kim faced in martial arts, in business, and life, Dr. Kim’s indomitable spirit has held strong, inspiring and motivating others to also achieve their dreams and goals too.
