Cindy Chang Teaches Us How to Love And Follow Our Dreams

She didn't just stun the crowd with her nationally televised singing. She surprised herself.

Cindy Chang, an unemployed technical writer and editor who self identifies as a housewife these days, was a contestant on America’s Got Talent last night. The 42-year-old modest and shy woman didn’t even let her family know she was participating in the talent contest because they’ve discouraged her from following her dreams in the past.

Chang, who reminds us that being a housewife is a full-time job, took the stage and went on to deliver a flawless performance.

It may have been the audience’s reaction that overwhelmed her after the performance, or maybe that she had finally fulfilled a dream to perform live in front of thousands of people cheering her on. Regardless, she’s an inspiration for sticking to her dreams. With lots of smiles and giggles.
