August Man Malaysia‘s 2017 Man of the Year, Julian Yee, is adding a short film to his list of accolades after Samsung, the South Korean electronics giant, releases a short feature film entitled Julian and His Magical Skates, as a special tribute to the rising star.
Yee, who is scheduled to partake in the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018, will compete in figure skating.
The film, which is fully recorded and illustrated with the Samsung Galaxy Note8 and its S Pen, tells the story of a boy named Julian and his inseparable bond with his skates, as well as his journey to chasing dreams on the ice rink.
“My story is a tale of ‘do what you can’t’ because I really did; and I want to remind everyone out there that young or old, you can achieve your dreams and you will be surprised that you can actually do what you never thought you could. With innovations and advanced technology in today’s world to help make things easier, none of us should be held back by ‘ifs’, ‘buts’, or ‘maybes’. We should all have that burning spirit to achieve the impossible – and from here on out, it should be ‘yes’, ‘can’, and ‘do what we can’t’!’” said Yee.
Showing tremendous fortitude, he detailed his arduous journey in an exclusive interview with August Man Malaysia.
Now his biggest test awaits in PyeongChang.
