The above was said by Chinese movie star Zhang Ziyi at a recent awarding ceremony. Ziyi has grown from a young girl to an internationally 闻名(wénmíng) known star. In 2000, with the movie 卧虎藏龙(wòhŭcánglóng) Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), Zhang Ziyi 一夜成名(yíyèchéngmíng) became famous overnight and successfully got recognition in Hollywood. In a place with few Chinese actors in Hollywood, Zhang Ziyi strived for her dream without too much outside help. With a never-give-up attitude, Zhang has eventually become 认可(rènkĕ) recognized around the world. When asked how she became so popular in just 10 years, she answered:
Wŏ suŏ zuò de yíqiè, qíshí zhĭshì xiăng dāng yí gè gènghăo de nǚyănyuán, ràng zìjĭ de lù zŏu de .
“我 所 做 的 一切，其实 只是 想 当 一 个 更好 的 女演员， 让 自己的 路 走 的
“Everything I do is to become a better actress and to live a more wonderful life.”
