Back to School Advice from Margaret Cho: Find What You Love & Never Stop Doing It
Comedian Margaret Cho shares the best advise she was given in school, and why she keeps that simple advice -- never stop doing what you're doing -- to this day.
What's the Big Idea?
To cope with bullying at school, Margaret Cho turned to humor. Cho started writing jokes for a stand up routine, and has come to be known as the Patron Saint for Outsiders.
Behind this success story lies a tragedy, as her mentor in high school was a teacher who was murdered. And yet, Cho tells Big Think this act of violence reminded her of "the immediacy of life and the necessity of living your life and living it because it can be gone in a moment."
And so Cho's mentor's advice -- "never stop writing" -- has stuck with her to this day.
