Estella Gong always felt self-conscious about her body. Because of her thin build she was often called “scrawny.” One day, she decided to do something to change her self image.
Gong took on a Giveit100 challenge to learn to do advanced push-ups, which meant that every day for 100 days Gong would film herself practicing new push-ups.
At the start of her challenge, Gong wrote:
I still remember the days when I couldn’t do a single regular push-up. It seemed like I was “planking” on the floor for the longest time, all the time. One day I felt the satisfaction of finally being able to push my body off the ground and eventually was able to do a push up.
But quickly, through perseverance, Gong was able to complete elevated push-ups, clapping push-ups and more.
Congratulations on your accomplishment, Estella!
