About the Author
Meet DJ Chung
DJ is currently living and working in Silicon Valley after graduating Cum Laude from Duke University with a degree in Economics.
Before Duke, DJ graduated valedictorian in a class of 640 students from Hickman High School in Columbia, MO. He served as President of the National Honor Society and was also captain of the varsity golf team. His senior year, DJ finished seventh at the Missouri State Golf Tournament, setting a record for shooting one of the lowest rounds in Missouri state history, four under par, 68.
While DJ graduated at the top of his class, he was not the smartest student, far from it. He became valedictorian by relying on his mother's lessons and immeasurable support from family, friends and teachers. DJ credits his success to his biggest influence, his mother. His mother set a solid foundation for him based on diligence, perseverance and trust through her own example, stories and advice. DJ continues to apply her life lessons, recounted in Build Like an Ant: How My Mom Helped Me Become Valedictorian, in making career and personal decisions.

This is just one of the absolutely precious and priceless gems contained in this book. Each quote froom Mama Chung related to the author's story of how he took these Life Lessons and applied it to what became a very successful life. Don't we all hope we have that much positive influence on our children and grandchildren? Don't our children all deserve a "Mama Chung" behind them, encouraging them onward?
Inspirational, uplifting and touching. A must have for students and the caregivers who wish only the best for them as they journey through life. Well done !
This book is far more than just the perfect gift for every student entering high school. The lessons that Mr. Chung explores are applicable to every stage of life. The ideals of having the right attitude, knowing how to set your mind to something, preparing properly, and learning how to surround yourself with the right influences/mentors are important lessons for EVERY person to take the time to learn. The broad appeal, and brilliant insight, contained in each chapter of this book makes it the perfect gift for any person in your life hoping to reach that next goal or achieve that next success!
