The Story of Chang Ju Yung- Rising Above
The story of Chang Ju Yung, the present CEO of Algorates Company, is nothing short of inspiring. He is a man who fought against all odds to get where he is, and his story is a reminder to all those who doubt the power of sheer will. Chang was born in one of the most impoverished villages in South Korea, where basic necessities such as food and water were considered luxuries.
Chang started working on a farm in order to support his family. Since a very young age, Chang had dreamed of being a teacher. However, circumstances did not allow him to pursue his dreams. It wasn’t because of the lack of trying either: Chang tried to escape from the farm four times. However, he was caught the first three times, and finally managed to escape on the fourth.
The Big City
Upon arriving in the big city, Chang and his friends started working at a factory. They received a measly salary of half a dollar a week. That didn’t deter him though. He continued to struggle and finally ended up opening his own store. His struggles continued, often taking him back to the farm. However, his relentless desire to succeed always pulled him through.
Moving back to Seoul, Chang started his own garage, which later turned into Hyundai. Chang didn’t stop there, however. He continued to learn, and finally broke into the world of finance. Eventually, he decided to buy into Algorates, a company that was becoming popular in the world of algorithmic trading. Algorates gave him a clear route into the world of international finance.
Chang succeeded when everything was going against him. His relentless approach to success is one that sets him apart and makes him an example for all aspiring business leaders.
