Learn from the example of Bruce Lee to achieve dreams

The daughter of martial arts legend Bruce Lee has addressed students at Near East University.

Shannon Lee, 46, a Los Angeles based actress, delivered a speech as part of a Communication Faculty event organised with the US Embassy, telling the audience of local and foreign students about her father’s philosophy for life.

Known as the pioneer of Chinese martial arts, who spread its popularity around the world, Ms Lee said her father’s achievements had been “no coincidence”. She advised the students to “take action” and apply themselves “emotionally and physically” in order to make their dreams come true.

“Decide on everything with your heart and list all you want to do in this life. Your thoughts, your behaviour and your appearance must not conflict with each other,” she said.

Ms Lee was presented with a commemorative certificate by the Deputy Dean of the Communication Faculty, Gökçe Keçeci Şekeroğlu.
