Years might pass, but everything feels exactly the same as when we were kids. Our conversation eventually drifted onto the topic of ONE Championship, and he asked me to explain it in simple terms. I paused to think of a good answer before I opened my laptop to show him this slide below.

ONE Championship is a celebration of Asia’s greatest cultural treasure, and its deep-rooted Asian values of integrity, humility, honor, respect, discipline, courage, and compassion. We have a simple formula for success. We believe the formula of values, heroes, and stories is infinitely scaleable across the continent. Through the magic of storytelling and the power of media, we unleash real-life superheroes, celebrate values, ignite dreams, inspire nations, and change the world. #gratitude
