In the end, Yeng shared that there were people who also doubted her capabilities in music but she overcame these challenges through prayers and also people who believed in her.

She encouraged her Yengsters to surround themselves with people who believe in their talent because if they surround with skeptical people, they might be convinced that they can’t do it.

“If you surround yourself with the people who believe in you, you will start also to believe more in yourself,” she said.
