Truthfully, this is the third time I am receiving this award and I am truly grateful and honored to receive it. Honestly, I feel more touched and honored receiving this award now more that the first time. I am thankful that I have been able to stay and maintain this position for this long and to have people still look for me. Back in the day, there were many people who thought, ‘Why are you here?’, but I am happy to have received this award. I believe that everyone’s role is very important and all I’ve done is do my part, and if my role is important enough for me to receive this award, than I am truly grateful and honored. Thank you.

⁠— Jay Park
