The Margaret Cho speeches address the importance of persistence. While many have failed to keep up with projects or goals, in large part due to socio-economic considerations, Cho stresses the need to fight relentlessly for what one wants.
Cho is a well-known American comedian. And while she is recognized for her ability to light up stages no matter the city, she has also been notably successful in the realms of fashion, acting and songwriting. Her appearance in numerous shows such as Celebrity Family Feud, Dancing with the Stars and The Golden Palace are all rooted in her drama studies at the San Francisco School of the Arts.
Maragaret Cho's dedication to performance art and the humanities in general is concomitant with her support of the LGBT community, and in 2000 she was given the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) award. Her novels "I'm the One That I want" and "I Have Chosen to Stay and Fight" have also been critically acclaimed, furthering her personal brand and international standing.
