I am most inspired by my grandfather who lives in Beijing, China.

He turns 93 this year and has always been an inspiration to everyone that has ever met him. Despite losing hearing over the years and family moving abroad, he has maintained an intellectually fulfilling life and a strong sense of independence. A former chemist, he continues to keep up to date on the latest scientific trends and has even learned how to navigate the internet to stay current.

He has lived through nearly a century of the most significant changes in China’s history and I am always in awe of his perseverance, his dedication to his family and his ideals.
