WOW. How can I put this? I think Jeremy Lin and I should seriously get-together -- and the video lists the top 5 reasons why we should do so! I remember when Linsanity broke out in February 2012, I was still in-between internships after graduation. Shortly after I decided to take on a full-position in March, Jeremy Lin began to take on more interviews to talk about himself and his dreams of becoming a basketball player, and how his dream came true. On a more serious note (not sure if it came through in the video...), I wanted to tell Jeremy how much he inspired me to follow my own dreams. When I started a full-time job, I always thought it was what I wanted. But seeing Jeremy talk about how we should never give up on our dreams really put me on the edge. He planted this mini seed inside my head, and slowly but surely, I began to listen to my heart and do what I love most instead of what others think I should do. Even though he is not an actor or an artist, his work ethic, his passion, and how he serves his community, is what made me a fan/supporter. I'm sure the video made it clear that I'm a fan girl... but hey, #noshame.
I also wanted to bring attention to LINSANITY, a documentary featuring his journey into the NBA that's playing in theatres right now in select cities. In this doc, it follows his journey since a little boy and how basketball was always one of his passions in life. The journey had multiple ups-and-downs, but Jeremy Lin did not give up on his dreams. His resilience and faith for his dreams is inspiring. If you want to hear how an underdog work day-in and day-out to follow his dream, you should definitely watch LINSANITY while it is still out in the big screen. While you're at it, bring some Kleenex!

If you live where the film is not playing, TUGG is a unique social website where if enough people from your city/town want the film to be shown, TUGG will find a theatre and show the film. Isn't that amazing? Check if TUGG LINSANITY is in your city. :)
