Shen Yun Reveals How Rich Adoptee’s Heritage Is

“I was born in China, … in southern China. … I almost started crying because I just never realized how rich my background, my culture is, because I don’t get to experience it very much at school or in my town.”
 

“Everything surprised me. I didn’t know how beautiful and vibrant [Chinese culture] was, how deep the culture is. It not like anything I ever imagined. I didn’t know what to expect when I walked in and I loved it.”
 

“Shen Yun “was one of the most beautiful things I’d ever seen, and I wish we could talk more about this culture in school and keep it alive there.”
