Jason explained how he had his first attempt in 2017 and due to some errors, he took the decision to stop.

He said: "To all the dreamers out there, you may fail, be mocked, looked down upon, it may be so hard but regardless of how you feel, keep pushing. Dreams do come TRUE!!!"

He expressed gratitude to all the people who helped him achieve success. "To the voiceless and everyone who has a dream, this is for you," he added.

Apart from dancing, Jason is a singer and an entrepreneur.
