To many, peace is what enables development and is critical in providing opportunities to young people. To some - especially those from regions involved in conflict - peacekeeping and efforts to preserve peace are absolutely vital in bringing prosperity and hope for the future.
Even in the hardest circumstances, dreams can give you the courage to live, and I hope I can share that message with children in need.
For a long time, just skating in the Olympics had been my goal because not many Koreans had done it.
Korean audiences are amazing. The fans scream so loud, and that really surprises skaters when they first perform in my shows.
L.A. is a city that has given me great support for skating.
Watching previous figure skaters, I always wondered why they cried after their performance.
My coaches have told me my muscles and body structure are perfect for skating.
I always wanted to be Olympic champion and do clean programs.
A coach told my mum I had talent and I would make a very good skater.
Building a better life for every child is a lot harder than becoming a world champion. Both goals take dedication and commitment.
During my early skating years, there were not many ice rinks in Korea, and even the few rinks that existed, most of them were public.
I am not trying my best because it is the Olympics. I try my best always.
I like to be just an athlete, but if I go to competition and compete, I love to be a star, maybe.
I love figure skating. It's what I'm good at.
I love weekends. Just like everyone else, I get to rest on weekends and go out with friends. I hate Mondays.
