Cho was bullied as a kid for being different and used this as fuel to start performing professionally at age 16. The rest is history. Since then she has performed in over 300 concerts in two years, opened for Jerry Seinfeld, became executive producer of ABC sitcom, "All-American Girl," and is an active anti-racism, anti-bullying and gay rights activist.
