Inspirational Speech

Charleston Shi has been giving an inspirational speech titled "We are the Future" at various venues. The speech detailed his personal literature endeavors with moving experiences, emotional growth, light humor, and positive inspiring messages such as take initiative, be persistent and don't let go dreams, be thankful, be responsible for our own future.


Included in the third book of this series "Rage of the Serpents" is a piece of Charleston Shi's piano composition named "Mystic Eyes", which was inspired by a main character in the series. Dr. Berners, Univerisity of Indianapolis, highly praised this composition as "a very intense and dramatic statement with interesting chromaticism and expressive dissonances. The continuesly shifting textures and transforming melodic ideas maintain interest very well." An album containing the recording of "Mystic Eyes" and other compositions will become available soon.
