    Founder and President of the Falling Leaves Foundation
    Her official birthday, November 30, isn’t her real birthday because her father didn’t record her real birth date.
    She abandoned the Chinese tradition for women to retain their surname when she got married.
    She got married twice and was divorced once.
    Her mother died two weeks after she was born, and she was deemed unlucky by her family as a result.
    Her stepmother was an abusive, manipulative woman who spoiled her two children and maltreated the rest of her family.
    Her own father treated her with indifference, even forgetting her real name and actual birthday.
    Her first husband was a violent man, prompting her to divorce him four years after their son was born.
    Through her leadership of the Falling Leaves Foundation, she promotes cultural understanding between East and West.
    She was voted #4 on the New Zealand Children's Best Seller lists. (2004)
