China

My grandma, Jinfang, grew up in a village near Wuhan. She and my grandfather raised six children during the difficult years of the Great Leap Forward and the Cultural Revolution. Although we were very poor, my parents knew that education was the key to a better life. I received my doctoral degree from Yale. I will be a naturalized US citizen soon. I hope one day my parents will come and live with me here.
