A Journey from the East to the West
Via PPT presentation, I will discuss the development of my creative career as an artist and educator, as well as my life experiences, from a labor camp to the high educational institution, from a traditional Eastern cultural background to the contemporary Western environment, from the pleasure of fulfilling an American dream to the struggle of facing challenges as a diaspora.
